The machine work is done. There was a fair amount of distortion. The bearing retainer/cap bore was about .015” out of round and the mating surface was also out of flat about .015”.

I have to investigate what issues may arise from the change to the mating surface. As Ironman said I might have to shim the cap.

I have yet to look into the threaded holes to see how complete the braze is. Judging by the way the drilling felt it’s not very good.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

After sandblasting the inside I brushed two coats of epoxy prime in the original red color. It took repeated flushing with wax and grease remover to clean the cracks left on the inside of the block. They continued to ooze what I believe to be oil after several flushes. I brushed an extra coat on the cracks to help seal.

Great idea for long term maintenance.
