Re: 1987 R10...aka Belushi

I got the valve covers on last week, but I just didnít like the idea of having to fill the oil through one of the small original holes. So, I snatched the passenger side valve cover back off and installed a cool little aluminum fill tube/cap. Marked my location, Bored a hole and drilled and tapped the 3 holes to hold the piece in place. I like it much better now.

Before pic for reference and one now...

The valve covers look better to me than the junky black stamped steel ones, but still blend in well.

Re: 1987 R10...aka Belushi

Yeah, itís for sale, but Iím still tinkering. It didnít have a jack or related tools, so I found them here on the classifieds. Got it today, so when I got home tonight, I cleaned everything up and put the first coat of paint on them. No pics, but who hasnít seen a jack & tools.

The build was a lot of fun to follow. Sorry to see it go, but interested to see what replaces it.

Iím actually going to TRY and stay focused on projects I already have. Today I ordered the new torque converter for Martha. And, as soon as itís back running, Iím going to get Walter running & driving.

Re: 1987 R10...aka Belushi

Belushi went to his new home today. So, it’s now time to focus back on Martha and then Walter. Here’s hoping that my vehicle ADHD stays away for a little while.
