Ray's Parts List for Long Trip

By Ray Hinnant

For a long solo trip, I take the following:

  • Carb
  • Generator/alternator
  • Starter
  • Distributor
  • Water pump
  • Lots of small parts (points, plugs, etc.)
  • Axle shims
  • Tire tube
  • Fan belt
  • Electrical wire and electrical tape
  • Light bulbs
  • Gasket material to make one if needed and black silicone to make a quick gasket
  • Front wheel bearings
  • Extra oil, water and grease
  • Good set of tools and torque wrench

Items on this list will probably get you to the next town.
