Day 2 - Engine

Today more time was spent on sanding out the engine covers, to remove blemish using 100 and 180 grit. Some covers required the use of a rough file and dremel to work on the deep gouges. 
Areas where more work was needed have been marked up.
The flat faces were also sanded on a flat block to level the mounting edges. 
The original connecting rods did not use shells, so these need to be milled so as to fit onto the newly polished journals. Quite some time was involved in truing and setting up the milling machine, there after a spare con. rod was used as a tester to get the process correct - it was found that the edges needed to be chamfered quite a bit after the milling had been done to unsure the correct seating of the con. rods.

Main engine casings were also vapour blasted.
