Love your site. Thought you’d get a kick out of my Parilla 250 project. Purchased it in Minneapolis last month, hadn’t run in years. Cleaned up the points, new battery and swapped out the VHB Dellorto for the original SS1 with remote bowl that came in the parts box, gave it a couple of kicks and… Nothing. Took it out in the alley and it bump-started on the third try.
Put 50 miles on it this weekend, including a stop at Acetoberfest in Chicago. Still bumping it, but as soon as I get new points and condenser that’ll be a thing of the past. When winter hits the frame goes out for checking/bracing, and then I’m going to give it the cosmetic treatment.
That’s a heck of a find! Perfect starting point! Thank for the Pics!
What beautiful engine!
