    Cheers loopiemclooperson

    The hub plate has forced me to use the tig I bought some time ago. Been lazy to learn how to use it but no choice now, would take too long to look for one.

    First time aluminum weld so took a whole day to mod this plate. Had a look at at a few videos on how to weld last night and they do it so easily but not so for me :-(

      Motorvation has been sitting patiently for a few years waiting for an air cleaner expected to drive tomorrow! :-)

        Air filter, it's a z50z filter and I think they are similar/same as the ones used on the Ms, I was going to mod an atc70 or ct70 air fiilter but...

        one problem, the connecting rubber tube has a bigger diameter than the A carb i'm using.

        Looks like the rubber connector is wrong for an M

            Just use a rubber insert. The clamp will seal it.

              when welding with the tig make sure you clean the part really well, tigs hate dirt.
              You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

                Turn up a spacer ring on your lathe. Out of plastic, Black Delrin (Acetal) would be nice.
                A bit of rubber on the carb, a spacer ring between it and the air cleaner housing.

                  With the Tig as Z Nut said Clean Clean Clean. Right down to Cleaning the filler rod just before you start.
