Finally got the brass bushing in and went to finish the clutch rebuild and ... the damn drive gear looks like it's warped.
How does that even happen?!?!

Mmmmmrph

In the mean time, got all the cables are in. Just need to do the rear brake wires to the pedal and the tail light. Gave a halfhearted, no-progress go on the twilight tube and stopped before frustration took over. Man that tube is tiny.

Inching along.

Verily.

In the small victory category.... I was able to get the taillight wires home. I ran a piece of 30# monofilament up the tube that was tethered to 10# braid. Then used the braid to tie a line-pull hitch around the three taillight wires. Used a tiny pice of electrical to make a taper for the wires and to covver the bottom of the line pull hitch. The braid worked a charm and with a combo of pushing and pulling we finally got them though.
