Another taipan mission "restore to as close to new looking as possible. As this is a very unique engine this should be a very interesting project.

We have got this engine stripped down and ready to clean and refinish the crankcase. New bearings are also on the way.

Here's the cleaned up crankcase and it's not looking too bad actually.

Next it's onto the backplate..........


Now its onto cleaning up the cylinder head and liner.

And a quick assembly to see what it looks like.

Very nice we think. These are all the original parts that have been cleaned up to reuse. Now the real work begins.

Onto the crankshaft..........
