A heavy parcel arrived at work for me today, 60 ish kg apparently.
In a wooden crate, and wrapped in grease paper
So after unwrapping this is what I found, a NOS standard Sprint block - late model too, with the enlarged water pump to jacket waterway and no jackshaft wear present or damaged threads
and as my new pistons don't fit !
its off to Chesman Engineering later this week for a bore and hone
That's part 1 of the new engine underway
