Ouch that's a big chunk out of your pocket money Kev, yet I'm sure it will be worth it. Are you just sealing the wood and not staining it (I hope) Very Happy Have you got a copy of the plans now Kev or have you managed to find out the sizes etc?

and shimming up for a good match up to the moving contact
its now all back together and fitted back onto the engine Very Happy Very Happy
and now the engine has so much compression its a fight to get over the topdead point Very Happy Very Happy
well and truely impressed with the extra compression she now has ,as it was good before

I have to admit this engine has took you some time to get right Kev, yet I know it will be worth every second spent on it. So fingers crossed you should have her on it's trolley, up and running ready for the start of the season, next month so not much time left Laughing Laughing Laughing

Good luck Kev and I hope it's not too much of a headache to get the rest of the parts sorted.
