No such thing as the "Last Project"

Lucky you. I have an 84i I am having to do all the things you are doing, except add breaks, rebuild all calipers, now change out all lines. I just finished my carbs. You can see my post with Virgilmoble. He is good help. The post is probably one of the largest post on here now.

Let us know how it rides
