|Back to Laos.|
I'm back in Laos, once again it was a long trip from the UK..
Uk-India-Bangkok-Chaing Mai-Chumpae-Vientiane and finally Ban Namsanam Laos..
Many thanks to Auke for meeting me in Chaing Mai...
It's great to be back Home the Sainamhai Resort is looking lush after the rains..Mr Vongsamay picked me up from Vientiane and saved me a hellish bus ride, great to see you Mr & Mrs Vongsamay, we have many new projects on the go for 2014-15....Watch this space.
|Mr & Mrs Vongsamay|
It was the end of Buddhist lent and an eclipse of the moon....many people came to the resort to set the small boats afloat down the Nam Hai river...
|Mrs Vongs made the boat...wow|
After a few days rest i decided to see if Lilley would fire up after her long sleep in a dusty shed, alas it was not to be, no ignition......strange as she was fine when I left it..
So I purchased a new Battery for about $7 and set about the wiring loom with a multi meter..
|Checked the fuses and battery feeds, all good|
|Looking a bit sorry|
|So simple it's a joy...|
|Cleaned the head and carb...|
|Complete Clutch kit|
After refitting the parts, I set the valve clearances, changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, fresh fuel and away she went......refitted the wiring look, lubed and adjusted a few things.....
Next was the rear wheel, I hit a pot hole down in Xepon last year, the impact broke the wheel bearings!!I have had 3 sets of bearings since so I figure the hub must be damaged as well, new tyre as well..
|Complete wheel, tyres a bit skinny|
All done back together and running sweet, took her for a run and she's as good as it's ever been, I will order the new ignition switch and broken panel from Thailand and fit them when they arrive.
I will spend the next few days checking all my kit and then head of for a ride next week...
