Thread: Army 741b

    Army 741b

    My 741b army Indian is about to be brought back to life after sitting 20 years. I have some work to do on the top end, tanks to fix, rear sprocket and tires. Bound to find some other things needing attention..

    Please remove the white star and put a proper NZ number on it once repaired and much more correct.

    As uncovered in storage. Last ridden 1998. Getting excited!!

    Tires flat , likely perished.

    Suffered a bit of corrosion

    According to previous owner (faint) army numbers are painted on saddle bags... If these could be deciphered, I could paint them on the tank. Question is were they the same number as on tank or where they a bag number?

    Today I washed and cleaned the barrels. Also cleaned up the valve spring collars. NOS intake valves coming from Canada.

    Is that corrosion on the primary case or has something been spilled on the case.

    Corrosion. Wishing I'd sprayed some oil over it all them years ago. The tanks and barrels were elsewhere, in drier storage.
