Extractors are BACK!!

Well blog fans, the news that Damian had been waiting for finally arrived on Friday night - the extractors (with new heat protection coating) were finally back!!

Damian headed out to Dave's place and collected them in their shiny black glory!!

Jason popped over, and after jacking up the front end and some jiggling and cursing, the extractors were positioned neatly ready to have the gasket installed and be bolted on...

One gasket, complete with blue goo!!

And through the magic of the interwebs, the extractors are bolted up!!

Just a quick blog post tonight... Dave is due to come around on Sunday to complete the engine rebuild (bolt on the carby, check the nuts and bolts etc and start/time the engine for it's 20 minute run in)!!

Stay tuned...
