Default Cirrus so far

Hi I have been working on a Cirrus this year and the progress is as the photos. Completed the cylinder head a few days ago, very pleased with the out come. Sorry about the pictures being 90 deg out.

Very nice work - and only in a year! I've been poking away at mine for 3 times that long and have finally got to the point of thinking all the parts are made ... and then some additional detail pops up. (90% done - 90% to go)

It was satisfying to finish that head wasn't it?! (So much opportunity for something to go sideways.)

I see you ended up with the same gap between the front cover/bearing carrier and the back of the prop hub as I did. Seems we both made it "to print". I spent too much time trying to figure out where I went wrong to have such a large gap .

Enjoy the rest of the build.
Charlie

Thanks for the replies and good comments, work still progressing making the head bolts now. I got the castings from the USA a few years ago don't know if they are still available , defenatly not in the UK. I will keep progress reports coming.
