Mon dieu,

This is not a video by mr.SinghG5, I'll tell you that.
 ::)

Most of the talking is just small talk. Here are the main phrases:
---------------
"Remove air filter"
"Ah, we win more place"
"See, FI system laid bare"
"A guy consulted Hitchcocks on the kit conversion, but they say it will not gain in power. What do you think?"
   "Oh, FI often fails".
"removing carter, look it's clean"
"we're saving even more weight. Look, feel the difference".
"there you go"
"cleaning up new stuff"
"place a new gasket"
"electrics now. Done with electronics. Just electrics. He knows his wires by heart"
"soldering, final touch"
"you hear? with carburetor"
"warming up for final tuning"
"oh, it's wonderful"
"impressions?" "oh, no sweat. Wasn't big deal"
"there no problems only solutions"
"tuning now"
"moment of truth: on the road".


Final text:
This second part deals with conversion, next I'll make final report of road performance, mileage, pros and cons of the conversion.
I had numerous problems and failures from the FI system. Made this conversion for that plus feel having a more authentic motor now.

Maybe you can knit it together. I was flabbergasted.
But it is an introduction to french conversation.
Hope you're not too disappointed.
