Engine assembly continued on this frigid Wednesday. A stand was made ready to hold the engine. Meanwhile, the two remaining sets of piston rings were gap checked and fitted to their respective cylinders. More parts were also added to the crankcase including the intake manifold and a lifting eye. Assembly of the accessory case was also begun with the installation of gears and cover for the oil pump. Then the fun began. For good reason, the propeller hub is designed to not come off. Putting it on is apparently just as difficult. It took four people many frustrating tries to get the final part, a snap ring, to finally click into place. We then spent a little time cleaning up for tomorrow's chapter meeting. The next work session will be Saturday, January 6th at 9:30.
