It has been a while but I can relate to that as well. Good to see your progress Tony.

Hello

As I said in the last post I am trying to keep the post up to date.
This week I finished the valve guides.
They are now fitted into the block.
Next will probably be the valves followed by the cam followers and guides.

Hello

I have a bit more progress on the engine.
The valves and caps are finished as are the cam followers and guides.
The cylinder block is mostly finished now.
I will probably move on to the manifolds next.

Thanks Achim,

I have just finished the screw adjusters for the cam followers.
I think I will start the exhaust manifold this week.
