Thanks Vince.  The cross-head is in - it slides smoothly but stickily if that makes any sense - hoping once it's guided by the piston and connecting rods it will bed in and loosen up.

Hi Simon, Great result :ThumbsUp:

I know it's tempting but I'd not be too keen to run that back and forth now to free things a little until you get the cylinder bolted on and the piston rod connected up. That way you can tweak any minor misalignment and allow it to all bed in together. Looking good though - you'll have that turning over at Forncett at this rate ;)
