Default Re: Effigy's history

Well, finally got off my ass and back into the garage tonight..

Cleaned off as much of the ultimate grey gasket maker as I could, then put a coat of Kuril on and put the case back together.

everything rotates smoothly, so I went ahead and put the pistons and cylinders back in, push rod tubes (split upwards) and heads torqued down.

it resembles an engine again! :P

I think all that's left now is to install the alternator stand, put the alternator in the new shroud, put all the tins on, the flywheel, hold the engine up in position so I can figure out where I want to install nut serts to mount the oil breather box and 6AL box..
