...wow, sounds like you got a steal of a deal; hope you get her running soon and she works out for you!
Please post some pics so we can see how your new TLR looks?

Got her running now I think it's got oil leak from clutch cover I pulled off cover and cleaned it both side and out a thin layer of silacone the silver stuff and put it back to gather but it's like it's building up pressure or something cause after running for a while it starts leaking again but it was good for like ten min or so

hey, so if I understand correctly, there a breather valve for clutch?
There is no "breather valve for the clutch" specifically. However, I'm sure techie96 is referring to the crankcase breather situated between the cylinders in the "V" of the engine. Find the other end of the hose indicated in the diagram on page 8-24 in the TLR manual, and you will find the crankcase breather.
