That is brilliant Frank!!! Real progress on both body and engine fronts.

I am pleased that you are at the 'putting it back together' stage. I have yet to hear whether the second head from my engine may be saved!!

Good luck with it all and have a great day on Friday.

In light of Chris's thread, just a fuller update, my engine is progressing, a few issues raised their ugly heads, but in an engine which hadn't any protection for 65yrs, they weren'tnt the biggest of surprises plus its now a much older engine than those rebuilt in the 80/90s.

A lot of accessing and clearing of all channels, tubes and nooks and crannies was required.

So, liners all in, crank and camshafts in, now replacing a few more bushes to allow remainder of build to take place, have to wait a week for those, they then need fettling before fitting.

So the next few weeks should see an end in sight bar any other hiccups.

And now a few of the engine.

There have been a number of niggly and unforeseen issues which have added delays running into 3/4 weeks over the last few months which I wont go into, but hoping we are on the home straight now.

There was the slightest of wear in the con rod bearings so a new batch gotten off Omicron to speed things up and they've been sent off for reaming as required. Also a slight difference in cam followers which may need some adjusting too!

Quoting off Jame's Facebook ...plus taking the photos from there too.......

"Today I decided to do some work on the Aurelia engine, the bottom end was near complete however we have changed the original worn out steel cam followers for cast iron type which don't suffer as badly for wear, the iron followers are shorter overall length however have a thicker Base, this and the fact that the heads and block have been skimmed caused uncertainty with valve clearance so I decided to build the engine with old used gaskets first to make sure I could get tappet clearance comfortably, once satisfied I stripped it down again and rebuilt with new gaskets, 3 of the special domed head nuts are knackered so I have used ordinary m8x1 nuts temporarily until replacements are sourced"
