Well, having started the thread and posed the question back in the summer I've finally got around to commencing the refurb. To be honest, it's more of a tidy up than a refurb (Colcreate and Alan did re-furbs!) but mine is in reasonable condition to start with...
Strip and clean carbs, new seals, strip oil pump, new seals, new impellor, flush oil system, change gear oil, etc, etc.
Flip hull, polish and fix any previously unseen blemishes
Restore brakes to trailer (contentious, I know)
New seat backs
New grab handles, paddle pouches, etc - thanks to all who have dug out bits and bobs - you know who you are!
This will be a slow burn guys so bear with me!
Only took an hour to get this little beggar off with a drill, chisel and lump hammer! I think I'll buy a new Yamaha engine bolt lock when I remount the engine because it was a stubborn little devil....
Box of valuable bits!
