The recuperation of Toad.

I've now got the main bits back from the machine shop.

Crank crack tested, polished. Flywheel shimmed then the whole assembly + clutch individually balanced. As will be the rods and pistons.

Block and head chemically cleaned. Bores honed. They also supplied the shells and bits.

So far they seem to have done a good job.

Bit surprised they didn?t ask for the front pulley! It?s usual to include this in a full bottom end balance. Looks like good value for money though.

When mine was balanced, I was told my pulley was so bad I had to scrap it and fit a new one.
