Brake Cable Thingy & Seat Creation

First I thought I would share our work area as of recent. Since moving into an apartment Bill has been nice enough to let me use his back yard to work in, which i'm sure he prefers. He has been doing most of the work as of recent. 

Alright, I got to spend another day working on the moped. Today we installed the rear brake cable and made the seat.

Adding Area For Gasket

We didn't trust that there was enough area available for the gasket to make a good seal where the engine and the cylinder meet. So Bill thought it would be a good idea to add some area to the engine with some J-B Weld. So what the hell it couldn't hurt right.  Here we go.

Bill prepping the weld
We taped off all of the areas we didn't want the weld to get on
and put a piece of tape between the two case halves to prevent
the case from sticking together.

Cutting off the excess with a razor blade

Some soft filing to make flush. 
After we finished the next day I was organizing my work area and realized a piece of the weld came off :(
I think it was due to the very old JB "kwik" weld we used. 

I had to rip the top off to get it open :)
So the next day I went back to Auto Zone and picked up the J-B Weld Stik and redid the side that fell off. 
It worked great, no need to tape anything off. 
Side finished with the stick

The E50 Engine

Well the engine is out and ready to be disassemble and cleaned. Most of the parts will be replaced with upgraded parts. Let the ordering begin.
