Thanks Rohan!

Oil change has turned into an engine change - too much grit in filter - hopefully have just been leaning on crank thrusts too heavily whilst sorting out clutch &/or “swarf” from inlet cam blanking tube - either way a bearing check is in order and I’ve not found the time to do the engine pull - (I have gotten the other motor together, but have to remake a clutch bobbin for #2 motor too ) - so won’t be mobile again til after Christmas :(

We’re making a rear jack, it’s 90% complete - I’ve yet to put the kick up into the handle.

It’s not solely a Mono Jack, but you have take the rear body work off the 300 to get it to work on the Sports Racer!

May be a bit of a problem on Elans!
