Well, it’s Spring so it must be time to put things back together. The block is all stitched up with two new valve seats and a new sleeve in number seven. I had much fussing with the new main bearing as it was a little tight when I torqued the cap and I wound up doing some careful sanding with 1000g paper. Takes a long time to remove any material with that so my chances of overdoing it were very slim. It’s now just fine.

Block comes home next Saturday and will get the transmission bolted up and back in the chassis all at the same time. We’ll be driving it to Gilmore to put it in the PAS Museum and bring the ’31 home. Times a’wastin!
