Hi all
The pistons are all out cleaned, oiled and ready to go back in, I have cleaned up the 2 location holes in the head. The bores have been cleaned up and we just need to clean up the crank and put the pistons back in. So far no further problems have been found apart from some sticky rings that have responded to cleaning in paraffin and a rinse in petrol.

An 8mm drill was used to clean up the location holes and I will get the airline out tomorrow and blow out any swarf that has fallen in to the oilway.

Working full time is not what it is cracked up to be as I don't have time for anything so I made a determined effort to get some work done on the Appia this weekend. I have been in touch with a trimmer who will have a look at the seats and give me a price. So the seats have come out so I can drop them off. The engine still needs sorting so looking through the manual there is a section on inserting the camshaft and getting it to mesh with the oil pump/distributor drive whilst keeping the dizzy drive at right angles to the cam shaft so that is where we will start. Also purchased a new wiper arm bit pricey but it fits.

I have been negotiating a price for the retrim and to keep the costs down the trimmer asked if I could take the brackets off the front seats. As it turns out the bottom of the backrest where it hinges onto the base is one piece so would not strip down further but what a lot of work the old seat was inside very impressed...hope the trimmer can do them justice but he has been in the trade for 30 years and is presently working on some Aurelia seats so fingers crossed.

Bit of an update on the retrim...just had the seats measured up for the new cloth and he estimates 7 + 1 metres the extra metre being in case of emergencies down the line. I will have to measure the door cards add 2" all und and then decide if you can get one or two door cards per running metre on the 54" wide cloth...we shall see the door cards are not very big.
