The rebuild of my redtop engine has been uber-slow in recent months. I had the block rebored ages ago but never got any further than that, mainly due to getting christmas out of the way and other bits and bobs that neededing attending to.
So today i picked the block up from the cleaners. It's been derusted and acid cleaned, then phosphate coated and oiled. It's pretty much immaculate now, there's the odd tiny spot of flash rust here and there but they will soon be gone. Then i popped to the shed at work and collected my engine stand ready for the job.
Also picked up my core plug and oil canal plugs, to add to the POR-15 and Metal-Ready i had delivered before Christmas. So now i can make some sort of progress. Just got myself an oil pick-up pipe for £20 too so i'm just getting parts here and there
