Jim at Tri-wing rang melast night,i did'nt know butthe end of stainless brake line splits and theres a brass olive inside that must'nt be seating properly so will have a look today.

Had the driveshaft-coupling machined & welded other day.on trying on trike in gear with engine running there seemed at bit of wobble and movement.As having it welded can draw it to one side

The pinions on axle end & engine end allow a little movement but to much will wear them out in a short life span.

Having it checked on lathe at machine shop monday.



Found these exhaust 2" steel bends on ebay will make life simpler fabricating.

When i had driveshaft-coupling cut-welded last week the weld pulled the driveshaft out of line.Had it straightened,machined today will refit and test tomorrow.




Connected brakepipe,soon as full pressure was reached the brass olive in both couplings failed.Took pipe to local hydraulic company today,they said olives were'nt seated properly,refitted them and replaced with new pipe £5.

Will fit and bleed brakes tomorrow.

:waving:Looking good!:p
Good idea on putting the undercoat, Fiberglass is NOT water proof & will damage it over time.
