    Well……….

    Had a small leak from the remote reservoirs, so stripped it all down
    and ended up replacing one of them, the bleed the whole system, in
    preparation for the track day. But once at the track I realised I had no brakes!
    Had to do the sighting laps with no brakes.

    Made it back to the garage and bled all the system again and got the pedal back.

    The engine has been letting by on the rings, so a bit of crankcase pressure.
    So oil was finding its way out. So we just kept cleaning it up until lunch, when I then removed
    The pcv which seemed to be in the middle of it. The small hose at the bottom, was to blame,
    So swapped it out and all seemed well for a while.

    It lasted till 5 minutes before the end, so happy we got a full days running.

    Now to strip the engine down and rebuild with new parts including s60 crank, forged rods, forged pistons
    and all new bearings etc

    not really, but I'm going to run out of time to finish and test it before August

    this engine was built using all sorts of bits and bobs, just to get some seat time, so its served its purpose.
