I can only agree wholeheartedly with what has already been said, you've done a cracking job on the car, and the workshop is simply stunning, one can almost smell the straight mineral oil !

Today, after long thinking, I tried to repair the existing hood. Although I have other parts available that kindly donated to my colleague when looking into the calendar ... how I have it at work, I realized that it is impossible to catch ...

So I tried to repair the humpbacks so that you could look at it a bit. The upper half of the bonnet flapped 12,000, and it was Coars from Tamka who made it very light and I am very happy that I only went through two tiny places.

I will probably not solve it, the bonnet now looks pretty good, like old metal plate on the old car and it does not shine ... it's no Ferrari

Beautiful work, Renek. Amazingly realistic. 

Just add some oil stains to the floor under the car because that Bentley must be leaking here in there.

I know it looks bad !

With the block off (non detachable head) things do tend to flop out, but after a rebore and new pistons and rings things look a bit more recogniseable.....

While I'm at it, in case anyone else is doing a four cylinder Bentley at the moment, this is the block/head bit with the water jacket plates plates removed.

The only way to get to the valves is take this off and put your hand up the bore a la James Herriot, but the real nightmare is putting it back on again over the pistons !!

Do you have any pics of the water pump, and how it connects to the radiator?

The Airfix kit only gives the pump and inlet to the cylinder block, nothing the other side!

What an incredible bit of casting to produce that & nearly 100 years ago, they'd want to CNC machine it now. I've read about these Bentley engines but never seen one pulled down like that, thanks for sharing these photos.

Hi Ian,

 

Actually I do, but I dont want to hijack Renek's wonderfull build log with lots of pictures of oily old bits of metal so what I'll do is make a new thread in the general car chat bit when I have a moment and post them there !

 

Cheers
