good news JCS is safely ensconced in a nice care home...we tried to look after him at home but my sister found if he went down she could not get him back on his feet...anyway they have chickens where he is now and we have arranged for Mum to join him in a week  so he should be fine...

went to see the engine man...all shut up so I rang him and it sounded like he was at a Santa's Grotto...anyway... he did let slip the crank was done but he would have to check the progress on the block etc...he promised he would ring me...you can guess what happened next. I will try again tomorrow in between the gasman coming and going to the dentist.

Got to see the engine man...he is a bit confused re the plugs in the crankshaft..he has done 2 but says the other two on the webs don't go anywhere. I dug out a diagram of the lubrication system in colour and took it over for him to peruse...watch this space

Well the "clean" room is ready for the engine rebuild but the engine man is still holding on to it..next Wednesday he tells me he has done the 4 core plugs and needs to pressure test the block then there are 2 plugs in the crank..

Hi all...got to see the engine man, he informs me that one of the core plugs in the bottom of the block is leaking and we need another one so dropped one off this morning. he might actually know what he is doing.
####### STOP PRESS#######
he said it will be ready for Friday!
here's hoping

Hi Clarkey,

I would change them all as they tend to rot from the not visibel side...and if one is bad I would'nt thrust any of 'm...now you're at it it's a very small job...

Hi
it was one of the replacement ones that was leaking he had put 4 new ones in and when he tested the block for pressure one of the new plugs was losing pressure so he now has a another new one to put in....fingers crossed he will be done for Friday

Ref your core plugs: If they are saucer type the recess needs to be really grease free, then a slight bead of Araldite around the edge of the plug and tap it in. Lay the block horizontally and warm the Araldite to let flow around the plug. Leave until hard and you won`t have any leaks. Most engine builders fit them like that and I`ve never had one come out or leak.
