Timing chains installed, ready to receive the heads

Almost complete!

I am pleased to report that we have this engine rebuild well underway

Using our CJ designed extraction plate to

With the heads removed, the exposed block and
cylinder looked pretty nasty

coolant jackets
This is a countersunk screw hiding inside
a coolant galley!
