Thumbs up Ahh .. enough of that stuff

and now back to work!

Hope to get the short block done today, all the way through to installing the flywheel and clutch pack.

Off to a good start: the end-gaps of the new rings check out OK. My super thin feeler gauges are English units only, so needed a calculator to convert them to mm. The first pic shows, or will show, using a piston upsidedown to insert the rings to the proper depth, and leveling, for checking the gap.

For installing the piston/rod assemblies later fortunately I had some clear plastic tubing that will fit the rod bolts. My normal fuel hose pieces are too big for this tiny engine.
