Just a couple of photos to start. I didn't have a digital camera then so some were shot in B&W.
These are the patterns and core boxes to cast the block. It is wet sleeved so the water jacket was tied together in one core.
The crankcase cores carried the waterjacket cores and the timing gear and flywheel end cores drop into core prints.
The oil filter core is locked in by the flywheel end core.
The first good block. It was hard so I had it annealed at a heat treat facility. It is actualy block number five. Cold
shuts, inclusions and various other calamities condemned the first four.
The complete layout of everything it took to build before I painted it and put it together.
