The double nut would have to be on the adjuster side, where you can already use the nut this way. It was corroded like so many other things in these cases.

I have cut a notch in whichever end was protruding and then backed out with a flat blade screwdriver when this has happened to me.

Today was gear cables and electrical cleanup. Also bashing the flywheel cover into submission for about 1/2 hour to make it fit. I had to replace one gear cable as it frayed going into the selector box. Stealing from my road spares again…

Really all that needs to happen on this engine is fill the oil, shorten one new gear cable to put the lid on the selector box, and kick start it. I don't have a shroud yet that fits - I had ordered one in my Mercato order but it was on hold waiting for sip to get stock on that junction box. I called last week and figured it out with Dave - so we went ahead and did the rest of the order without the box. That still probably doesn't put the box into my hands this week though, as there are a couple other SIP order items in there.

we will see what happens when you order that part number from SIP as a comparison...
Have you got your junction box yet?

The little black junction box for the stator wires? Think I might have a stock spare one lying around.
