Hi Dave the first photos the start of hogging out the crankcase
the second photos show the finish hogging with the half holes and centre bearing recess machined for when i realized i had to get the tool all the way in
Dims are not important as the case has clearance for the moving parts
Regards barry

I got the sump finished and then fitted to the crankcase with the required fixings then rough out the CC,bolt together and bore the end holes and machine
the centre bearing section This then allows you to finish machining the crankcase
