did some work today on the new engine in a well equipped workshop.
-bolted the outer timing side cover to the mill-bed
-used the innertiming side cover the line up spindle and main bearing centerline
-drill 28 mm made the required hole
-fitted inner timing side with needle roller bearing
-finished seal holder ready to be welded on the outer timing side cover
crankshaft still to be modified, it is a used item and today appeared to be bent, have to check that one again or use my own crankshaft (from my still running engine, modified in '82)
axial setup will remain more or less the same, with different parts and material selection.
oilpump still to choose.
