Engine rebuild - last of the machining

Well I took the crank, con rods, pistons, fly wheel and clutch cover over to the engine builders in Edinburgh, where they steam cleaned the pistons and con rods and balanced the whole system. Its surprising the amount of difference between items such as the pistons, even for stock parts.

The crank has been wrapped in cling film to protect it from dust and damp, I just need to get the head shims measured up and the head finished. then the whole thing can go back together.
