Two steps forward, one step back-Vespa Club

This week was very busy for the Upper School Vespa Club. With only a few remaining club meeting times and many things on still on the build list, the pressure is on. This week the club completed the following engine rebuild tasks: Gear Shaft install, Crank install with seals prepared, Primary Gear install and the Clutch basket and layshaft gear install. This was followed by the clutch cover being attached to the engine case and the rear brake system installation followed by the main reah hub.  WOW!  about 4 hours of  total work time this week. Only one setback today.  A piston ring snapped during the install of the Cylinder head! We also put it on upsidedown….  Time to order a new one and FAST!
