Well Charlie (our preffered machine shop man) pulled out all the stops and managed to get the Stag block back to me all nicely bored to +20, and decked, before swanning off on another foreign holiday. Although it had been through Charlies steam cleaning chemical bath I still spent a happy afternoon with our steam cleaner probing every orifice and satisfying myself that it was squeaky clean. I then left it to cook in front of the heater before giving it a quick coat of black paint and some new core plugs, and very nice it looks to. I'm just off now to fit the crank. If the pistons turn up on Monday (from Rimmers)then i shall be cooking on gas, I love a plan when it all comes together.
