    Yes I can turn it over with my hand using the front bolt under the cover, also when I was taking the fan off it was turning over easy.

    Ok going to try and figure out how to look at cam chain and know what I am even looking for after I see it

    Hopefully with the help of some very sharp bike builders on this forum the Internet, several books and some patience I will figure out what I need and what goes where.

    Bought all the paint for the frame, engine and wheels tonight. Been cleaning on the engine and man is it dirty! Simple green and a lot of scrubbing. I am going to paint the frame black the engine cast iron and the wheels might be black as well.

    I changed my mind it's too cold in my barn to paint the engine.
    I am going to keep cleaning parts.
    Going to start grinding on the frame in a few minutes. Love Saturday in the barn working on projects!
