    That would explain why no foot peg either. One legged owner.

    Undernath the filterless carbs, the back of the upper center of the primary is visible and there doesn't appear to be a blister for the starter mounting, much less a starter I blew the pic up to about 600% to see if I could spot the base nuts of a 750. It was apparent there was no camchain inspection plug. 750 engine would have to be adapted to the E-start primary. Either that or the crossover adapted to the 750 primary. No actual photo of the primary side could indicate a mish-mash of parts not constituting a complete machine.

    Caswell's works great to seal steel tanks with pinholes. I cannot personally vouch for it on 'glass tanks.

    I gave up after a MISERABLE failure with POR15, and I will leave it to the professionals that SPECIALIZE in sealing tanks and guarantee their work on gas tanks expected to be running ethanol-based fuels.

    Although it hasn't been put to the acid test yet, I used the Bill Hirsch tank resto system on the Titanic's metal tank. It's a 3-step process of cleaning, etching and then coating with the liner chemical, which goes on very thin, unlike some sealers I've seen. I also worked over the exterior surface where the leaks were, prior to cleaning and sealing, with marine epoxy. Needs a little sanding and a coat of primer and I can fill it to the brim. It held 2 gallons of E-10 ok, and MOST of the leaks were towards the bottom 1/3 of the tank.

    I keep hearing there's no really reliable process for making fiberglas Norton tanks E-10 compatible. perhaps by cutting out the bottom and applying some sort of epoxy, it could be done.

    Thanks, not what I wanted to hear but pretty much what I expected.

    As Danno says, try the Bill Hirsch gas tank sealer. I have used it to correct the insufficient job done by Casewell's on a fiberglass tank. Billy H got his mix together. I've used POR 15 on metal tanks...25+ years and still going strong, with proper preparation.

    Just ordered another kit for the tank of my buddy's '66 Yamaha Big Bear. I was not aware of it's use on fiberglass tanks.
