“A couple of photos after Thursday’s and Saturday’s work on the engine. The new cylinder liner is in and intial testing looks like we have a good, watertight seal. We won’t really be able to say 100% until we get it rebuilt and run- up, but it looks really positive. We started stripping the head down as well today and that seems generally fine: a couple of broken springs but nothing major. Next job is to buy some replacement gaskets”.

Thanks to Duncan, Davie, Rod and new volunteer Ewan for all their work on the engine at the college in Galashiels.
