I'll be glad to get back to Metric with the new (to me) Suzuki, my tools and fastener stocks have been built up over the years on Kawasakis, Subarus, Shoguns and smaller Suzuki outboards, so I'm better prepared. Never thought metric fine would be so appealing until I spend the last year with a Johnson. I suppose its only what you are used to.
I have some UNF taps somewhere, a legacy of Hilman Imp ownership, so I'll dig them out and clean up the threads. Can't find a big 'U' bolt or lifting eye anywhere, so I'll have to buy one tomorrow. I took a rubbing of the flywheel top earlier and transfered it onto a sheet of 6mm steel plate ready to make the bracket. Its turning into a lot of work to get the engine off before its new owner picks it up.
