last bit before valve lapping .and waiting for parts to be ordered

thought to clean up at least some of the sand casting marks in the combustion chamber ...by no means perfect but far less pointy bits of aluminium to gather carbon and pre ignite

valves lapped
just to find the valve spring compressor and fit the parts back together

the valve stems seals are still holding the valves in place , so I guess they might last a bit longer ?

Charlie I have a valve spring compressor that goes on over the spring and them you screw it down. It is meant to be used with an air fitting that screws into the spark plug hole. Air is supposed to hold the valve up while you screw the compressor down. I also have and older one if I can find it similar to the one in the picture. I am in the process of sorting and rearranging my garage so I do know where it isn't. Let me know and I can bring them to the Lowood swap meet.
Regards Martin.

thought to start on the wiring loom
some interesting challenges ahead I guess

as you would expect from something near ancient ...giggles
the loom itself looks ok , some insulation wrapping needing attention




some interesting mods



and some typical corrosion points needing attention









lets see what develops
