15 years of dreaming, 8 years of building, and it moves under its own power for the first time e-v-a-r! The “rod knock” sound was a plastic shield hitting the flywheel (Whew! I did NOT want to have to pull the motor!).
OEM filler was between the driver’s door and rear wheel, feeding the gas tank under the back seat. Under the back seat is now 4-link suspension, driveshaft, and dual exhaust. Move the tank = move the filler.
