Further pictures and work details
Before we got the engine assembled, it took a bit of sorting out to see where everything went and what its function was. Because the engine
was fitted with an indicator, there were a few items on the crankcase that were definitely not standard, and we had to make sure that we
understood their function before we went ahead with a test run.
A better view of the main bearing and ring oiler. The bearing half shown has all of its machining marks present, with very little obvious wear.
Front end, a bit lacking in depth of field, but shows the injector and Indicator tap, plus the starter cap (hexagon headed object)
Closer view of the crankshaft, big-end bearing and the oiler casting bolted to the crankshaft web. The main bearing oil wells are filled
by removing the black caps with 'RH' embossed on them. When running these oil wells supply oil to the main bearings through the ring
oilers which run directly on the journals.
A better view of the eccentric mechanism for the Indicator.
At last!! The new flywheel is on the crankshaft.
Indicator tap and the injector.
