This morning it was another round of painting. The third coat on the cylinder head and a second coat going onto the other parts – the governor housing, magneto mounting bracket and the oil filler.
I think it’s inevitable that there will be some touching up to do once the engine is assembled. I’ll probably leave it at that for now. I might go over the fuel tank and tank straps again, as I’m not sure how many coats they’ve had. It’s just nice to get some protective layers of paint on the engine to keep the old enemy, rust, at bay!
