It will all be back with me next weekend and happy to sell o...

Stick with decent mineral or semi-synth, make sure designed for "wet clutch" (not car oil) - these engines were designed for basic oil - simple is best.
Change it regularly along with filter & it'll be fine.

Re: 1973 Z1-NOISE IN MOTOR

Optical ignition is okay, but needs to be set in darkened surrounds usually - like the old Pirahna (Newtronics) systems.
Dyna is proven technology & works well.
