To an innocent bystander the photo below just looks like four torqued-down flywheel bolts. To this Enfo owner it represents the first progress on my project in several years. LOL. Finally got my friggin flywheel re-bolted to the crankshaft. Now onto the clutch, tranny & driveshaft.

On a side note, I don't recommend Harbor Freight Tools' "Pittsburgh" brand torque wrenches. :evil:

Took another baby step in my project. Figured the gas tank was as good a place as any to go to next. Got that removed today. Considering the rust on the lower sections of the body, I was surprised that there was only a little surface rust on the tank. There was about a pint of gas in the tank which was mostly "varnish". Next steps... finish cleaning out the inside of the tank and assess the condition of the interior. Get that cleaned up & painted and run new fuel lines.
