J27 Cylinder Block Trial Fitting

Print

On Thursday 17th October the new J27 cylinder blocks was trial fitted into the frames.

The cylinder block bolted into the frames - John Hall

The block was trial fitted to check that the holes that we had drilled in the frames line up with the holes in the block.

Didn't we do well? Harry Sams, Bill Sharp, Steve Hyman and Steve Gibson admire their handiwork - John Hall

If the alignment meets with our engineers approval then we propose to lift the block straight up, put the high temperature jointing compound in, lower the block into place and fasten it in for good.
