Sorry Bubbacluby for late reply...

Not much, have time but no cash!

I have made the Crank position sensor, I had the outside profile laser cut in 8 mm steel and then machined by my trusty machinist. It fits behind the fan belt as I prefer that as a belt failure won't take out the CPS and you don't have to remove it to change the belt. It's a tight squeeze but fits:

I also had a very interesting talk with Mr Russell who is going to help me spec the cam and will make it for me. I will, once I have some cash, also get him to build me a bottom end. He has been tempting me with some of his crank and rods...

Cheers

(2nd post as you can only add 5 pictures per post!)

In the mean time I have the engine in my study! Got to be some advantages to being single!

Great to see progress still, no matter how big or small!


Mr Russell must have liked it?

Yes, that's correct.

We still can't attach images to a PM, but this is being looked at by Mick.
