Dropped the tinware and firewall off at ABC coatings in Nailsea today.
It's all going to get cleaned up, blasted and powder coated.
120 for the tinware and firewall, should be back in about 10 days.
Hurrah.

Also received a full thermostat, rod and flaps set up today too.

In anticipation of the return of my tinware I wandered up to Western Hose at lunchtime and purchased a 45 degree oil line fitting and then round to Weston Fasteners to get some more tinware bolts and washers.

Hi Scoops

I used these for all the tinware when finishing off the engine on the Wizard.
M6 and M8 versions in lots of different lengths.

Booked the Wizard in for an MOT next Tuesday, going to give it a look over this weekend to see if there's anything I've missed that it may fail on.

Finally a little bit of progress on the 71.
Got the fuel tank back in place.


With the breather pipes all reconnected I then managed to get the firewall back in place.


I had a quick look to where I could fit the new electric fuel pump but have realised this has a 2.2psi output, which would have been ideal for the ICT's, but now I'm planning to fit a pair of IDF's I need to replace it with a pump that put's out 3.5psi.



And although I know other people have fitted them, I couldn't fit this filler pipe and get a fuel clamp at either end, so will be flogging this too.



I've now got to order some new bits and bobs. With a nicely finished firewall I can't reuse the scabby screws so need a set of them as well as the slide in engine bay seals.
I need a pair of IDF rebuild kits and possibly a replacement lot of jets.
Also need a clutch, some cheap oil to do a compression test and some engine flush and a set of over engine fire boards.


Got my heat exchangers and tinware back too.

Pretty sure it's a 200mm clutch Dude.



Firewall sorted properly now. Bought stainless screws today and fitted them, then found the 12v feed for the sender, so had to drop it off again, fit the lead, then refit. All sorted now. next job is to t-cut the paint in the engine bay.

Had a little bit of time today so got the T-Cut and Carnuba wax out to finish cleaning the engine bay.





Then on to rear valance










Much happier with it now. Obviously the catch needs cleaning and polishing, and the slots for the seals etc require cleaning, but it's heading in the right direction

Decide to make a start on the 1641 this afternoon.



Gasket needs properly cleaning off, it'd gone a bit crusty



Barrel #2


Barrel #1


#2 looks like there's a bit of oil in there


#2




Actually #1 doesn't look that good at the plug either does it?




Bores seem ok.




Awaiting some love......


I have a full set of replacement stock valves here, along with a set of rings and a set of valve guides.

Is it worth just replacing the lot?

Good call. Just looking at Dial Test Indicators so I can check the valve stems.

Needed to get the other head off too
URL=http://s35.photobucket.com/user/misterscoops/media/SuperDry/ADA5168D-5155-4049-9B82-36AD95D818E1_zpszk89pkex.jpg.html][/URL]

This side looked healthier so I'm assuming it had been tipped on it's side at some point.






Marked up and ready for some diagnosis from Nomates


Plugs look better this side too




Armed with some measuring data I set off to Dr Nomates Engine Emporium.



However, Dr Nomates shunned this info in his own special way by saying "that's bollocks, they are showing you measure the guide wear from side to side, they wear top to bottom" so we dismissed the article and he worked his magic.

Out came the collets and springs.


And he used his in built 'spidey sense'


He said in his opinion all the guides were ok but to relap in the valves, something I'd planned to do anyway.

Then we had a minor issue in that the exhaust valve on Number 3 had developed a bit of a burr from the collet and wouldn't go back down the guide. The first groove had an edge on it and I didn't want to bugger the guide up by forcing it.


Out with the cutting discs in the Dremel



Ooooh, pretty


Valve cut and a chamfer put on to make sure the guide didn't get scored when it came out.




Time to start clearing the drawers out and getting stuff installed!




Problem valve replaced


Along with the others


Just need lapping in now.

Had a little bit of time tonight so decided to make a start on valve lapping.


Mid-Lap






Need to clean this head up now, before starting the next one, before refitting the springs and then doing a valve leak check.
