    Hi there,

    I was re positioning the coil and lead when i noticed the plug lead was moving at the coil.

    Unfortunately the lead had broken due to age/brittleness inside the housing where it attaches to the terminal

    I cut open the housing to expose the terminal and made a screw on end for the new lead by soldering a screw into a short length of brass tube

    I soldered the connection then re sealed the housing with plastic filler and hopefully the coil will still work.

    Cheers.

    Hi there,

    Got a few more things done on the NC.

    Finished the wiring check and found the blinker relay was bad but apart from that all lights/switches working correctly.

    Got the guards painted and fitted.

    Fitted the right hand foot peg guard. Still need to make the left side guard and get it painted.

    Cheers.

    That coil/plug lead looks a bit thin?

    What C C hasn't mentioned is he's ordered a new side board from Ikea to put in the shed.

    Hi there,

    The NC50 is off the side board

    Yep she is a roller.

    Just need to fit the speedo ( still waiting for the stickers for it ) and get some oil for the transmission cases.

    Hopefully get it started over the weekend.

    She sure has changed from when she first arrived!

    Cheers.
