To make the inlet and exhaust guides more interchangable it would simply mean having to make shim washer to go underneath.
With a pitch of 1.5mm and the fact that these don't need to line up in any perfect position.
You could get away with making some washers out of some copper shim of about 0.25mm.
Just an idea.

Hi there Dave, the harbour is looking great as usual, I just wish I could afford to get out on it more often.
cheers

I'm starting to feel like I'm holding up everyone else on this build. Should I just send the flywheels out now? The fuel tank support columns take quite a few different setups to machine, so they take a while. Currently done 3, and nearly finished the 4th, but after I've done that one, I've still got 10 to go. Got several other projects going, as well as my HSC work for 3 of my subjects so please bear with me. After all, slow and steady wins the race. Rushing things gives poor results.

Hi Kaleb. I for one would be happy for you to send out what you have completed and continue as time permits. Your HSC quite rightly takes priority and as you say " rushing gives poor results".

Hi Herbie

All machined up except for valve spring retainers, which
are very fiddly to say the least.
Hopefully get them done in a couple of weeks.

Getting there slowly!

Dave.

Hey guys - whatever happened with this build? Did anyone end up with a running engine or have you all abandoned the idea?

Still going Cogsy. All my bits are done. I'm sure the rest ain't far behind.

If anyone needs a hand, just sing out. I still have some spare time.
