Dang special orders. A'ight, I can grate some nutmeg....
I will go with the casa de fledermous version. AND i will take a double with a dash of nutmet on top.
Which version? Previous version at la Casa de fledermaus, or the newly minted Vespa Crankcase Cappuccino?
Oh, BTW. Most important update: Still married! No, didn't roll the scooter into the living room, but as I had the exhaust off I decided it could really use a coat of paint, and had just purchased some VHT for the occasion...which, BTW, needs to be heat treated...and as I have a non-running scooter, thought best to throw it in the oven. Didn't smell all that great, and well, one of us has a sensitive nose.
Other news, the new water pump is now installed! Easy peasy compared to disassembly, though I nearly had an "issue" after bolting it together and forgetting to check for movement of the impeller. Fortunately loosening and retightening did the job.
So now it's attaching shocks, plugging in cables, etc. And the dreaded spark plug cap that never readily cooperates. I did throw in a new plug...probably not needed, but as I have a collection of spares and forgot to note when I DID change it last, why not. Then the cap can hopefully go untouched for the next 6K miles....
No rush from here on out as there's still snow on the road and I'll have to wait to (hopefully) get a ride in to see if the problem is solved.... at least I'm in familiar territory from here on out.
