found a good doner for my autolube cable end (at throttle position wheel), a section of choke plunger assembly diamater is 3.9mm, needing 3.5mm the OE end has, also my ace hardware had brass rod @ 3.2mm (for 1.68), they also had a maybe spring replacement for the "haven't found yet" ck. ball spring. Waiting for rim strips shipped w/not my tubes b 4 nu rubber installed. got an "enduro mirror" from local shop & popped the 'ol CT 90 plate on for a longer road test about 6pm tonite. ran rpm's up to 6 a sec & she was a little flat (I got it rich w/premix) going down to 150mj & a needle drop should crispen it up. 1 kick w/release on, started on 1st real kick. Clutch works ok but feels funky, I epoxed crack in push screw (cheap ass me) so upgrading to a 1/2 & 1/2 (as read here) rd 250-400 unit should improve feel. trans has all speeds shifting w/or w/out clutch felt fine. Can't wait to take a good shakedown, but F tire is original & rear probably 2nd, both hard as hell, so sawsall will be in use soon as I'm not gonna fight them off! I'm gonna order some brake shoes as even as I de- glazed them (i use concrete as it leaves surface a little rough to wear in) their 49 years old and are probably work hardened...

Replace the brake shoes. They can delaminate and if one does while riding it can lock up the wheel without notice and cause a bad accident.

Front wheel locking up even at 20 mph is not fun.

Yah, I've read that here. I put shoes in a vise & grabbed lining w/channellocks they were tight. I'm still going to order new as their cheap insurance, what brand should I look for? Thanks for watching my safety Mark!

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.
