Hey Ifty,

I went through this thread and made it so the images would show up properly. In the future, all you need to do is copy the URL of the picture, click the button on the bottom row all the way to the right which will make "[img ] [ /img]" pop up. Simply paste the URL between those two img codes and they will display as a picture instead of a link.

ill be doing a squish test to check if i have got the valve clearance as the head has been skimmed but don't know how many times.

had a few hiccups near the end, just noticed that the sump has a small crack but does not leak. (not going to chance it)

the squish test.

To check the squish profiling and valve/piston clearance, a bit of plasticine was used. Done it on three pistons (both end ones and one from the middle), to make sure the head and block are all even and not on a funny angle.
Usual process put the plasticine on the valve cuts on piston and the angled edge for the squish band. Put the timing on and give it a full revolution.
Know I know the best way would be to use proper tools to check the thickness, like a micrometer, but im building the engine in my kitchen Razz im not an engineer im a postman don’t have those things lol. Made do with using a filler gage to check the thickness. Pictures show how this was done.
All the clearances were spot on and all even.

engine is in and up running car flew through it M.O.T
