Holiday Engine build: Day 1

So we have had the opportunity to travel up to my big brothers place to work on the engine during the holidays. So yesterday other than being Christmas was also day 1 of getting some work done.

Roger and his Machine!
We managed to vapour blast the Ali. Covers to clean them up a bit - the vapour blast machine is one Roger has built himself and works really well. 
Cover after being blasted - really cleans up well and removes all the dirt and grime.

Comparison between the 2 rocker covers - left side blasted - right side as it was.

Once vapour blasting was done it was time to start sanding the scratches/imperfections out with some 100 grit sand paper.

Side cover after some hours of sanding - there were deep gouges to be removed.

While this was being done Roger dismantled the crank to clean it out as well as polishing up the journals.

All polished up, vapour blasted, and sprayed with oil for protection.

The connector rods were also vapour blasted and came out quite well.
