1500 Rehab!

Post by WingsAGMC »

I’m not new to rebuilding these monsters but I am new to the 1500’s; picked up a SEVERELY neglected 1997 today and there’s a lot of the plastics and such I need to locate. Figured between here and FalseBook I could find them!

But first - A shop manual which I can’t seem to find on the site here for it or couldn’t download it to be more specific.

Not too concerned with the left/right side covers at the moment but do need the left side faring piece that connects to the gas tank and left vents;

Need the center radio piece (it’s gone probably the whole radio unit actually)

SO - if anyone stateside has parts they’re trying to offload and the parts I need please let me know! I’ve just started to tear into it so a rebuild for the carbs is coming plus then trying to figure out how to remove the manifold and clean that up! Welcome to my gluttony!

and if you want paper:
Try to learn from the mistakes of others..... you won't live long enough to make them all yourself!
