Bottom end looking really quite clean-  bearings very smooth as well-  encouraging.


The glue holding the bottom halves together is quite strong.

I know I'm making slow progress,  but slow is better than none.








Keeping track of my case bolt locations.

Ah,  there's the rust. Seems to get in from the top and this is the low drain point in the frame.  That'll have to go.



I've ordered new cylinder jugs,  so the old jugs are auditioning as tool and pencil organizers - i think they'll be pretty cool for that use painted white.



I've got lots of engine parts coming in,  and have been trying to work my way through prepping and painting parts when possible.

My brother sprung for us both to attend the local Harley riders training course,  so that's awesome!

Still polishing the crankcase,  and thinking about rubbing it down with aluma-black to darkenit.

But have most of the major engine parts painted,  so gently test stacked it to see how it looked together!





Interesting how the paint lightens up in the sun and the flash.



It's incredibly satisfying removing the masking tape after painting isn't it?

First,  a happy clean piston waiting for new rings!


Next,  the problem child - how do i get this ?rusted? Stuck ring off the piston?



I've heated it up over my gas stove, and sprayed it down with penetrating oil immediately after in the hopes of getting oil behind that ring.

No dice.

I cannot get my circlip spreader (my ring modifier of choice) into the tiny space. Google has tried,  i need a bit of advice!

Bonus layout shot,  trying to get organized in the hope of putting this old girl's heart back together.
