Managed to find a few more hours to work on the engine rebuild, head done, new stem seals, ported and polished.

Head fitted

A few more bits bolted on



This engine will be for sale soon once I have fitted and ran it. If anyones interested PM me

Its not to bad to get on but its hard to do the top left of the dash and the steering cowling. I use a heat gun to soften it

Picked my new engine up from James on Friday, decided to clean it up a bit before it goes in.
Before



After







Still need a turbo so I can try my old engine, the this one can be fitted.

Well engines in, had a few little niggly bits but hopefully sorted now.
Heres a few more pics.







Brought a raider too, so need to start on that. Took the old engine out and going to fit my spare in.







Turbo rebuilt
