More Small stuff

Just goin through some more small stuff... Here is the new compression release for the Cannonball bike... It's a lot beefier than the original and should last cross country...
The left side slides into the compression tower in the motor case...It's a 10-24 thread. The right side has a new angle fitting to it that is bigger and stronger... It's tapped to 1/4x24.

As you can see, the carb looks like it's got very limited miles on it... The float almost looks NOS. Just to be on the safe side, I'm replacing it with a float from Competition Distributing...

One more small item is rocker lubrication. Since I'm using the OEM rockers I want ot make sure that greasing is fast and easy... I love the original twist oilers, but when you want to make sure grease is going where it's got to go, nothing beats a modern fitting.. It's also a little cleaner to work with...
