Super cool cars, totally not something I’d build …

More progress on the undercarriage has occurred, lots more elbow grease. We figure we have about 15-20 more days of scraping to go. We also split the case and examined everything. The crank looks ok, there is rust in the cylinder bore from water accumulation, the oil pump key is about to go, the cylinder heads look like they experienced a fair amount of detonation, and the compression was quite high. We’ll probably have to grind the crank a little, put in new cylinders, valves, and a few other bits and bobs. Also, it looks like the engine might have overheated, so we’re probably going to replace the oil cooler as well. More pictures here.

Hopefully some more updates will happen soon as we work on it. I’d like to be driving it by the end of the summer if possible.
