Yes my first reaction was to reach for the citric acid crystals!

Nice work Bob

Nice work Bob,
I watched John's video on the engine yesterday, First thoughts were he'd bought 'a pig in a poke'....judging by the amount of corrosion...
This doesn't seem to have fazed him...but it will be nice to see the refurbished engine when its all done...

Looking forward to the next instalment.. :thumbup:
