Hi, Good work... I am currently building a m66 but I am stumped on where the center stand spring hooks on the frame. Can you help?

thanks Rich

 

It hooks on the second stud of the engine, if you look carefully uou see is hooked on the stud over the spacer, it is marked with red in the picture:

Working on the gas tank, as usual the surfaces where the knee pads are mounted had some problems, not leaking but with corosion marks:

Extracted the broken 5mm bolts and made another threads for 6mm:

I have cut a piece of iron sheet welded on the tank from the previous owner (the gas tank was mounted on a Dnepr chopper style modified:

Soldering the surfaces with problems:

 

This is the result, the same on both sides:

After that I have aplied an antirust treatment:

This is an original IMZ M72 gas tank and not M61, M62, early M63 or K750/Dnepr K650/K750. They look the same but they are not entirely the same even though they are compatible as a spare part. Also this gas tank is a mistery to me, it is the best tank I have seen so far: no leaks (it has a small repair on the bottom), it was coroded on the sides but that is normal for this tanks because of the knee pads, as you can see it has no bends and inside there is no rust...
