limping forward...

Two small bits of progress with no photos:
1) the oversize pistons have finally arrived and the cylinder barrel is finally at the Scorpion Fleet Shipyards machine shop to get re-bored. We'll give it a new coat of black paint when it's back.
2) Peppe removed the drive-side bearing housing and timing-side bush from the crankcases and they too are off to the machine shop to have the new bush (this time undersized) fitted, re-ground to size and line-bored.
We now have all the parts we need to rebuild the engine so hopefully it won't be too long before it's back together...
