Nice man.

Just back from the sprawling windy metropolis of Inversneckie. Took the VHBZ carb with the stripped float bowl bolt socket into the guys at Precision Engineering. Pop back in a hour or so - we will see what we can do Mr Morrison said, also If it breaks the outer alloy then it’s at your risk but we won’t charge - go for it says I.
£20 for a beautiful repair using a helical type insert sleeve doohinky. There had been a crude attempt at a bodge with araldite / belzona / plastic metal or sumfink - history!

Worth the risk? Of course - dealing with craftsmen patently. Oh, and the machinists wanted to have a look at the mad farquhar who actually likes Guzzis.

Phnar phnar.
