More Engine Progress

The combined engine parts have all come together and we are just waiting for some hoses and the refurbished starter motor and alternator. Since there were two to choose from we might get them both done so there are spares for when they are needed. Overall the process has gone smoothly, some studs had to be moved across to cope with different thickness of fittings, and the oil pickup pipe for the sump had to be made up to fit. The old engine had a flat bottomed sump to accommodate a balanced crankshaft whereas the new engine had a step half way along. The new oil pickup had to fit the old sump and had to be modified to fit correctly.WP_20150306_001 600x549
