Whilst I am waiting for the bodyshell to come back I spent a pleasant evening with some wet or dry finishing off the coupling and connecting rods.

You can see the additional section added to the con-rod at the crank end to lengthen it to 47mm. This is 1mm longer than the drawing - I made up a test rod from scrap etch to the correct length which proved a tad too short for the Comet slidebars :unsure:

 

Just the accentric link to lengthen and then I can start assembling the motion. It will be set in forward gear with the valve rod fork end attached and the seperate lifting links.

 

I've also soldered up all the brake hangers/blocks, just need to trim up the last two then fit them to the mountings ready for attaching to the chassis once it's painted.
