Sorry but I won't be today Dave as I started feeling tired  :old: and I ban myself from the workshop if I start feeling tired that's when mistakes happen

A bit more progress. I think another day and I may be able to finish all the studs  :thinking:

It would have been finished in time for the planned engine running day on Wednesday but it has been cancelled   :Director:

I'm hoping for a chuff, chuff, chuff.  Currently as I turn her over I get a puff, puff, puff out of the open blow down holes  ::)


Thanks Per  :)
