I was in the shop today and I made some progress, the mongrel now looks like this
I mentioned a few posts ago a small hiccup while installing the cam carrier. I am using the updated carrier which uses hex bolt and the bolts contacted the back of the timing chain sprocket. I little time on the grinder and the problem as resolved.
and here is the photo I promised of the step at the base of the spigot behind the o-ring groove.

If you've been following the build you know I didn't turn my jugs so I ended up having to account for that step when having the portals enlarged to 99mm
I forgot the camera again today so you all have to suffer the crummy cell phone pics above. The upshot is that I forgot the photo below was on my phone from last week.
I did this on the PD on the way back from Asheville, it is a pretty good prelude to this winters project,
Time for a midlife refresh
