The Herald Is Alive!

Fuel Line to Carburetor

This weekend was productive. The goal for this weekend was to attempt to get the Herald test fired. I replaced the timing chain and my good friend Ralph from this forum resurrected the aborted carburetor months ago. The engine has been painted and reassembled but I was not at a point to try starting it until recently.

Got some time this weekend to continue on the Herald. Made a list of the hardware needed for the front suspension reassembly and picked it up on Friday. Due to availability, it is a combination of grade 5 and grade 8. Nothing like new hardware for a practical and aesthetic reasons. Finished primer and paint on the larger leafs of the rear spring.
