Cylinders go for Machining 
08th March 2018


The Cylinder Blocks have been sent away to our friends at Statfold Engineering Ltd for machining!!

Undeterred by the British weather, on Friday, Matt and Ben popped up and delivered the cylinder block castings to Statfold Engineering Ltd for machining!

Another little milestone for the group and the ongoing restoration of 27.

The Cylinder castings loaded and ready for their journey!
