So, this is the 2’nd time the crankshaft dies on me. This time after a backfire it became unbalanced and jammed the engine, good thing nothing broke. Both time i restored it at “nea Misu”, so i don’t recommend it. I have a new crankshaft ordered and waiting for it to arrive next month.

So, we have lights and spark. Ebay cables needed some modifications, they are missing the neutral light wire, but it’s not really difficult to insert another one. They also did not have any sidecar connection wiring.
By this time i also cleaned the cardan and rear wheel drive. Also, i chromed a lot of the parts. I don’t know whey but i don’t have any photos with them on the operating table. Turned out i have the solo rear drive so i need to replace the cardan gear to team in order to use the sidecar for long drives.

Time to assemble the front fork. Girlfriend was outside so i used her desk. Have to say she was not very pleased with the idea when she returned home

New Powerdynamo 12v system just arrived. It’s easy to install and use however it’s very delicate so be careful with the coil.
First attempt to start the engine was a success. I had to turn it off really fast and install the exhaust or my eardrums would have been toast.
Wish i could say everything was ok, i have a lot of things to adjust on it, especially the carburators, and at the moment i had no idea how to do it. Time for the google translate vs german forum instructions, round 1. I am however rather happy at the moment that i managed to start the engine and nothing blew up.
