Mark, you're going to have to rename your website, a bit misleading at this point. Sorry, just still hungry for metal chips! ;)

I know.....stopped at harbor freight this morning and picked up a new drill bit set. Tried to make a part for work and realized I was missing so many sizes at this point it was best to just start over. It was harbor freight so I had to repair the index and 1 bit was the wrong size...but its much more a set than I had left in the old index so I'm ready(ier) to start making chips!

I called the machine shop today.

Measure the rods and mains then grind the crank to match - about $350
Dust the valve so I know they're straight - about $100
Hone the cylinders in the block - like $600-800

The basement is consuming all the money but I need to get the engine back together....I'll need to talk to Lana.

Outside I'm up to stucco but the weather is not cooperating and it looks like Thursday before I have another shot at stucco weather...or perhaps it is as this means some shop time 
Between covid meaning I have little interest in interacting with others so say sell my broken BMW and the basement project meaning I know have way less places to store stuff....the shop got STUFFED! and I'm down to a tiny little work space.  So today the plan is to play a game of musical stuff and see if I can open up room to work on an engine and perhaps even see the car again.

The one one head is STILL on the mill .  Once I clear some space, which is probably an all day effort, I'll be back on replacing the 3 or 4?, I forget intake seats, cut the exhaust seats and I guess drop the valves at the shop to be trued up....they said they are running a 3-4 week lead time but I'm hoping on a small hourish job they use it as a fill-in and won't take a month so I cn get the heads reassembled at least.

On that note...off to organizing, which I hate.
