Some more re-built, pistons in, timing chain, oil pump and timing gear in the cylinder head fitted. The engine needs taking off the stand and onto blocks before I will fit the head, otherwise it is too heavy to take it off the engine stand without a crane, which would not fit in the room. So I will make a trolley and lumps of timber to lower the engine from the stand in stages. I want to get the clutch plate and starter fitted to allow it to be primed with oil through the system, before it is mothballed again.
Pistons & chain gear installed
Front cover on
Cylinder head, Cam gear (Note! cams are on the wrong sides in this picture)
Started building up the engine, crank shaft in, next up pistons. This will take a few days as i'll be doing it during the evenings, and its been a few years since it came apart, so will take a little figuring out which box the various bits are in.
