Project KP30: Fire-ring on all cylinders?

No.  Well, not on number 2 anyway.  After changing the oil I ran the old girl up and out came a load of white smoke.  A compression test confirmed the worst, though it was making full compression, it was just leaking away on 1 and 2.  I know, I was gutted.  Luckily it did it on my drive and not at Santa Pod.

By some total fluke I was able to get gaskets on a Saturday – Mega Spares came through big-time on that one.  So it was a full-on day and now it’s running again!

Now I’ve just get to get some miles on it before the Japanese Performance shoot on Friday and more importantly the Retro Rides Gathering on the 8th!
