Will do redback.

My engine building skills outweigh my I.T skills tho - something I'll have to learn to put up a video
I'll keep you all updated with photos as it progresses as well.

I can really recommend the book in the photo for anyone contemplating an engine rebuild, whether it is standard or otherwise. i have messed with engines for many years but I learnt lots from this book. - easy chapters, photos etc.

Yep i rebuilt my Bellett engine about 10 years ago - and it is still going.

Nothing fancy with my rebuild - I just wanted to make it look pretty (Paint and Chrome see thread here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=191) and not leak oil!!
Got a NOS VRS Kit, NEW pistons (30thou) from Dalby Autopro - and they were very helpful since I live in Darwin.

I had the engine bore and honed and the valves reseated by a local engine reconditioner and put it together using the Workshop Manual and had a blast doing it too.


Cheers
Neil
