Strip for Storage
On arrival the engine was still in one piece so the crank was pulled for storage.
Recent damage was evident on the governor gears caused by moving the flywheel with the sideshaft seized.
Removal of the main bearing caps showed the crank in surprising good order and the piston was moved two inches whilst removing the big end.
Injector poor with broken and missing casting.
