Initial check after arrival from RRHT.
Missing water pump assembly/
No ECU present.
No covers on exhaust/inlet.
6" aperture flywheel end, no cover.
No attempt made to check if the engine is free as internal condition unknown and lack of blanking plates could have allowed ingress of dirt etc.
Paint flaking on various areas.
The finish seems to be a quick blow over without primer on many areas and is deteriorating.
Movement to temporary Storage
VCI-10 sprayed into inlets and re-sealed.
Flaking of the paint has increased particularly on the top covers.
