Why have I not had an update?
If you are wondering why there have been no updates in a couple of days, here is why!
Greenville doesn't get snow. We get ICE. It freezes on the trees and the next thing you know you have limbs (and trees) falling all over the place and the power goes out. Our power went out Thursday morning. It came on late Friday evening.
I spent ALL day today cleaning up the all the debris. My back really hurts.
No work on the Vespa during that time. I was supposed to take the carb over to Mike the Vespa Yoda so he could rebuild it for me. Problem is, his home and shop are without power -- still. He is hoping to get it from a super secret location where I am leaving it before heading out of town. When I get back, he will be in Oregon. So, I'll retrieve the carb from the super secret location and put the scoot back together.
Oh, yeah, my rectifier also came in today. I have no idea what to do with it. It is a five point rectifier. I know I am only supposed to use three of the posts, but I'm not exactly sure which ones to use.
Regardless, it doesn't look like I will get to complete this project in 2005. I'll have to make the scoot a reality in 2006.
