Well, not much progress of late gents, but I have at least managed to get a little shed time.
As ever, we have a little scope creep here, I decided it would be better to build a separate 'stand alone' bottom end, so have another pair of JS's lovely rods now ready to go in the Maney bottom end.
The cases will receive a little fettling, just to ensure the nicest fit in the chassis etc and also to clean things up cosmetically, then I'll drill the extra oil hole below the pump, then they're ready for 'tumble cleaning'.
The barrels will be double checked for clearance with the new pistons, the bores will go for carbide treatment before the barrels will also be ready for tumble cleaning.
I wouldn't usually have bothered with tumble cleaning, but that's what Comnoz did to the head, so it's kinda raised the bar for the rest of it!
I'm just in the process of looking at cam / follower fit etc.
Hopefully the bottom end will be ready to button up in the not too distant...
