Got little done yesterday with the only machine related item of the day being we watched the new top gun movie last night, just awful. Its basically the same movie as the original as in scene for scene, character for character remake) and made worse because they released it to streaming with lowish grade audio (not even normal dolby much less 5.1 or atmos...I mean who really wanted to hear the jets flying past or over head anyway right?) so it doesn't even fully benefit for 30 years of movies getting technically better. It was Tom's most profitable movie to date and I would say one of his worst, not sure there was even a full 5 minutes that were engaging.

Today I have a little clean up to do on the cylinder bases where I beat them then see how the spray work to build them up.

For the record, I now the right thing to do is hone the block to smooth the roughish tool marks in the spigots then make a new set of liners that fit properly....and it this is another failure that is where I'll head next. The paint was so close to working, has I not had to pop out a leaking liner I've probably have gone to my grave swearing it was a good solution...it filled the space and the pistons and bores look good. but the liners bonded to the block could have been part of my leaking head gasket issues. The graphite will take up space and had good compressive strength but really can't bond anything so shouldn't have the same issue I had with the paint. It not I've got all winter to fix it properly.

Here's hoping that the graphite works well enough to count as a proper fix. :)

Did any of the remaining liners show that issue with uncured epoxy?

Yes, many were glues to the block, that was what caused all the drama removing them

I got distracted by the driveway....the paving guy did a piss poor job but before deciding to tear it out and start over I decided to spend some time and a few hundred $$ to see if it can be made acceptable.

I put 9 2 gal buckets of filler and fist rain was this (so imagine how it looked before)

Visually it looked good so I put a coat of sealer on and here is what I had...so close

Last night another 1.5 buckets. rain is coming tomorrow so I will either seal Friday or one more touch up Friday and seal Saturday.

Than back to the car....I still have 3 weeks vacation to use before the end of the year so I may dig into that to get the engine tested again before the weather turns horrible.

I know, I know.....delays on the driveway project.

In other news, you may not be following but Lyman, pronounced the same as Le Mans, is nearly encircled....which is really important in the war in ukraine, but makes me chuckle because Le Mans has been encircled for about 100 years, duh :)
