No doubt there will be a few expletives flying around before this refurb is done but I have n’t reached that stage yet. Nope – the blanks I’m referring to are to stop the ingress of degreaser, muck and whatever else is going during the cleaning and painting process.
The exhaust ports were the first to get blanked after stuffing them with rags and bubble wrap —
Then it was the turn of the 36Y inlets —
followed by the two little oil gallerys in the sump where the oil cooler lines fit —
I’ve never actually done anything like this total refurb before but having said that – I hadn’t made marmalade either until these past few days and it worked out ok —
At least that ol’ motor is looking fresher today than she was yesterday —
I hope to do a better job of the paintwork than the previous owners did and by the looks of things ——————–
that won’t be difficult 🙂
