So in the last installment we went from this

To this

Then Juan ran outta time and bailed back home.
He came back a couple weeks ago and wanted to get the engine running, wiring and controls buttoned up. Pretty ambitious.....
We found a hole in the piston

Fortunately, Juan brought a bunch of parts.

So we took a few engines apart and found the best peaces.

Did a hone, rings and a quicky valve job

And other then having to retime the cam, everything went easer then I expected.

So back in the frame it went

Some oil

And fuel

And away we go

Still got to do controls and wires, but its going to have to wait till Juan gets back down to SB.
Untill next time...

You the man Keef.
I saw Tiffo's last post on the CA site. She makes a good point but the heirachy see it otherwise.
They deleted that whole thread, by mistake. My skinny arse they deleted it by mistake. Another example of the weird and wacky censorship crap. We live in Australia not communist Russia in the 70's
I had a sms from Pommy today, he's about had a gutfull as well.
I'm gunna lurk here for a bit, see what gives.
Say Hi Tiffo, (who gave her that name for goodness sake) ?
