Sidevalve engines don't normally have valve covers, I'd have to mount up a pair of dummy heads to it

I did about 120km, mostly country roads, cruising on 70km/h, that's about as fast as she wants to go and about as fast as I want to go too. Did some light city miles just using DWL and some neutral coasting. Towards the end I was confident enough to do a few EOC's

Going by the fuel gauge, I'm getting around 15L/100km (coincidentally 15MPG too). Which is pretty reasonable, all things considered. Although I've been keeping speeds low, the revs sure aren't. She turns around 3000rpm at ~40mph (keeping in mind the ~4500 redline)

I even did a bit of work with her too.
