Next step up was to strip, sand, prep, and paint the engine tins. They were in pretty rough shape and get them installed onto the short block to continue on with the build.



This allowed me to lap and install the heads, sort of.



It was at this point that I realized that I forgot that the heads I bought had been machined for fire rings but nobody really knew what rings they had been machined for.

The ID is 98.0mm, OD is 107.0mm, with a depth of 1mm.

This is where I left things prior to heading out of town for the holidays. Right now my plan is to get copper rings custom cut (and I found a shop that can do it). I'm open to other things if the Pelicanites have ideas.

Once I get the rings and am back home I'll continue on with the rest of the rebuild.

Hope you all enjoy your holidays!
