Stripped and drilled!
I dropped the block back off at the machine shop today, the guys have had a look are are going to re-drill the hole and tap it as a metric bolt. All I now need to do is get the retainer plate drilled as well and I can rebuild this engine..
In other news i have started stripping the sump for the 1057cc, once painted it means the bottom end if done, bar fitting it. I will start the head next week.
