Beautiful work. I wish I had anywhere near the patience you do. That engine is just spectacular.  B)  Is that oil filler tube one of Marvin;s parts?

Yes Harry it is. It's smaller and has the proper twist in it as 1:1. I'm a sucker for that kind o' stuff...

And thanks...

Does Rolls-Royce have a museum?

Yes but I don't think they put leaky old crocks in there... :lol:

The levers and side shaft:

The rear connection to the bell crank, tension spring and magneto:

This side of engine finally done:

A proper fan belt-the 3 decade old rubber band from the kit is a joke. This is medical tape and has a nice texture. The engine front is done except for radiator hose:

Now all that's remains is a lot of scratch built linkage on the other side. The fuel line to the top of the intake removed for work space:

Back on the bench...

Just before getting ill, I had completed the oil filter linkage and an oil pressure line to the dash gauge. none of this is in the kit:

Onto the linkage that connects and synchronizes the distributor and magneto. It runs from the distributor, across the front of the block, then reaward to a bell crank at the magneto. Here's some bits I scratched for this:

The central piece is the vacuum canister supplied by Pocher and heavily modified with oil line fittings and cross shaft tubes:

Cato,

I hope you feel better soon. I began following this thread a few months ago and you got off to a great start.  But I haven't visited this for a while and when I saw your last round of pics posted, well there simply are no words. I honestly stared at those pics for a few minutes and went back and forth to determine if I was looking at a real engine or your car. Now I know what it takes to make the leap from amateur to professional. 

Get better soon and good luck with the rest of the car.

Tim

You're very kind Tim but don't confuse my work as 'professional'. There are guys on here who really are professionals and compared to their work, I'm a hacker.

I'm just a lucky amateur who tries things.

Trying to get back on the bench soon. Thanks for watching.
