Well done Gil !

That engine must have had some fair mileage put on it to wear that wrist pin to that extent .... or else it never got any oil for whatever miles it did put down.

Wow, you can really see it in the slow-motion from 23-35 seconds  :o

Hope the rest is an easy fix...

This one drove a large display for it's second owner. You might recall the 1975 picture taken at a show. I think he ran it a lot. It has had a good and useful life!

That should not be needed on a new one. Good that it went first to you.
