Thursday 24th November. Engine disection!

The 2.5PI engine was stripped tonight ready to have the crank polished and the block inspected by Carlow engineering tomorrow. Whilst stripping the engine down I found that the main bearings were worn as well as the big end bearings, so more expense is required.
The good news (well hopefully anyway) is that to my (albeit non expert) eye the crankshaft and the cylinder walls in the block don't look, or feel too bad, so I'm hoping that the bearings required will be the only large expense.

Workbench full of engine internals!

Crankshaft removed and ready for polishing
