Coffee Run

Made a quick run to Starbucks this morning. The Woody fired right up without issue and ran great. I stopped at the gas station and put four gallons in the tank and it fired right back up.

I think the brakes are bedding in nicely and are about due for an adjustment again. Fronts were at ~160 degrees rears at about ~115 degrees. Still a little coolant coming out of the radiator cap, but it's not overheating. Measuring the radiator it's at about ~130, and the block isn't over 165, even at #4. Going to continue to keep an eye on it, and plan on re-torquing the head soon.

Two other things I need to investigate.

  1. The speedometer is 5mph off. Not sure if it's the rebuilt speedo, or the drive gear.
  2. The brakes are not completely returning after applying moderate pressure. My plan is to replace the return springs with the 1931 style and see if it makes a difference.
All in all a nice uneventful ride!

Zigzagging my way back and forth I was able to rack up ~14 miles driving to a coffee shop 2 miles away :)
