Hello Everyone,

A new year, so thought I would share a few photo's of the engine induction ports.

Fired with enthusiasm, I bravely went forth to the garage to spend some quality time with "my girl".

A view of the top of the engine shows "premier suite" of the mice hotel complete with dead leaves, straw, hazelnut and acorn shells - need I say any more!

When I removed the throttle bodies, I was overcome with that "sinking feeling" but, needing to make my old girl feel loved, put this aside and optimistically thought, well at least she was able to provide a safe home for the mice who kept her company for twenty years whilst abandoned in a disused lockup!

Zikes! I guess you do like a challenge.
I look forward to seeing this project progress - a real labour of love.

Hopefully, the recent floods up your way won't dampen your enthusiasm for the work.

Considering the condition of those ports I would expect at least one and maybe all the pistons to be in a similar state. I would be removing the head to inspect it and if I am right then get a complete engine off fleabay, it would be cheaper than a new set of rings.
