I had a lazy day today, but I did find a complete HC for parts, will be off to collect that next weekend, its going to donate its radiator, front sub frame and a load of other parts for me and friends.
Late this afternoon I fitted the head to the 1159cc engine, torqued it down, fitted some spark plugs and a flywheel, then attempted to see if I could replicate the clicking noise found last time it was put together. Nothing was heard which is great news. That engine is now down on the floor and ready for delivery! One down one more to go.
I am still desperate for another con rod and piston assembly for a 1057cc or 1159cc… so I can finish off the other engine, everything is ready to reassemble.
I plan to do some planning tomorrow for the road trip I promised to get involved in, I have left it too long without fixing anything in black and white, I think the phones could get overused.
