Carburetor move

The PC20 powerjet carburetor has moved from my racebike to my streetbike.
Wanted a little more power in modern day traffic and this pretty much does the trick although a quarter turn throttle would be nice, but not so correct for this bike.
Mounted with new S65 rubber and springs and for some reason, on this bike the manifold didn't line up, so I put a small isolator between the head and manifold to get the correct height.
Needs a little more adjustment, But I like it, more power, but with original mounting, just as if it could have been a CYB upgrade back in the day.

engine stands

When working on engines, I used to use some wooden beams, but they always slid away.
then in the new workshop, I made an engine stand from some leftover bits of hardwood, and this worked so well for me, that I wanted some more, as I get more engines to work on at the same time now.

Today I made three more engine stands, with some slight differences, hardwood, so they don't damage what you're working on, but sturdy enough to be able to use an impact driver, and high enough to put a small oil catch can under it for draining engines.
