Charlie - if you can find someone who does vapour-blasting, that would solve the problem. I've had three engines vapour-blasted from scratch i.e. just the grease and shite removed from bare alloy (no good if they're painted).



The good thing about the finish, particularly on a sump, is that vapour-blasting actually closes up the pits and pores preventing corrosion from getting easily restarted and stopping crap from sticking so easily.

One you get it all perfectly cleaned and assembled you should entomb it in a large clear acrylic block so that it can't even get dusty. Very Happy

You're going to have to start wearing sunglasses when working on that motor.

just on the off chance

I have to change the serial number on the sump , so that my serial number here in aussie is registered 

does any one have the right stamps for this , loan or buy …..  just need  the number "7" and the number "0"

Some good advice Charlie, don't change the serial number it can lead to disastrous consequences if it is picked up.

engine covers update , made satin some 2 years  ago , took out some sandcast marks and a bit brighter now , there are still some legacy deep marks in the crank cover (typical stuff with fairings and rubber mating against the aluminium , drop events etc )
still some polishing to do , ...after its assembled , will do

should fit in well with the updated sump eh ?

shims for valves arrived today ..woohoo ...so decided to do a bit more work



cut off old and hardened rubber from the cover bolts and installed new








reassembled the timing gear and rolled it over a couple of times ...all ok and valve clearances are good to go






so then replaced the timing cover and cam cover ….with a sneak peak at the theme i'm hoping to achieve









yeah ok …..for all you northern hemisphere types (who cant read upside down )   right side up, by photo manipulation



what do you think ...looking the goods ….yes ?

next the output shaft sump etc

I truly appreciate your efforts towards cleanliness being next to godliness, Chaz. I, on the other hand, leave perhaps too much of yesterday's devilish grease and oil while I impatiently see how it all fits together.

brought old Gerty to her new home today  by visiting brisvegas again

thanks to Matt , the old girl started straight up , after removing a battery tender attached by Matt

thanks heaps Mate !!!

Gertys new home ...plush to say the least …"oh the serenity "



also acquired some bolts for gearbox to bell housing (enough for 2x applications ) from my favorite bolt shop

I showed the attendant pics of their stock supplied by them and installed to the motor that I have been working on ,  and she instantly recognised the  k100 head , which she also has , installed to a mini project she is working on ...great affinity indeed .. she was impressed  to say the least .

also some new head - steering bearings arrived , ( jap brand at least ) so the project moves along

Charlie, out of curiosity, did you replace those awful Torx bolts with capheads when you bolted the bellhousing back on? What the hell were BMW thinking of when they did that?
