Looks just lovely - very nice detail work. Of course as the engine left the factory all those bolts on the water jacket plate would have been painted over - ditto for the nuts and studs where the bores attach to the crankcase.

Mal, I don't know why but I have made inquiries. I do note that he is no longer a registered user of the forum.

Not exactly as it came from the factory, but it will do.

Andy,

Although you say "Not exactly as it came from the factory", to my uncritical eye, it looks very good! :)

It has been a while since the engine was finished. I have put almost 2000 miles on it now. I try to drive it a few times a month.
