More engine building

Well, have been making slow progress, no photos for the moment, but I've cleaned up the castings for the timing cover, sump and bell-housing, the bell housing has has a coat of clear high temperature lacquer and the other parts several coats of the engine block red.

The plan is to take the crank, flywheel, clutch cover, pistons and con rods to the engine builders for balancing and indexing. The con rods and pistons need separating, but there is a build up of carbon which is stopping the gudgeon pins from being removed easily.

I've still to gap the piston rings, so might check them this evening before heading off in the morning.
