T100R continued

Of course the con-rod hardware is new, but still needs attention.

Now the rods must be balanced to each other by weight-matching the small-ends (obviously the heavier of the two gets pared down to match the lighter) and then weight-matching the entire rod by removing weight from webs on the cap that are there for that purpose.

The tappet block oil returns are radiused and polished.

The tappet blocks installed in the cylinder block.  The bores have been honed to a perfect fit with the new tappets.

Verifying clearance between cam and tappet block.
