Happy Thanksgiving to all on this side of the pond  :).

Had some time to finish the valve rod today, before the festivities. On to the valve. I did use one of my 3 jaw chucks (with modified jaws) instead of the 4 jaw because the way the 4 jaw lined up, it would have crushed a portion of the threads.

And by the way, the photos are better, thanks to all the tips I received here.

Finished the valve adjusting nut, and the valve seems to work properly. Next, I will be on to completing the exterior of the cylinder block.

Thank you. I guess I need to finish the cylinder before the air test, don't I.

Been a while since I did any work on the engine; however, I have been doing other milling and lathe work.

No photos today; because all I did today was the cylinder head without the holes. Next is to drill the holes, and line them up to the cylinder and drill and tap the cylinder.
