Engine Components

Following an engine stripdown at the end of last year, here's a few photographs of the engine components prior to rebuild. I'm sticking with the original 1147 block bored out to +40. The crankshaft has been nitrided and the entire crankshaft assembly including the lightened flywheel, clutch and 3 groove crankshaft pulley have been balanced. The con rods and have been lightened and matched with the pistons.

Roy is doing a great job on the head - although he admits there is still a little more to do.

With any luck the engine will be assembled very shortly.
