Rolls-Royce 20hp crankshaft assembly

The crankshaft & crankcase for the open drive Rolls-Royce 20hp engine I have been working on came back from JEL Bearings last week. Whilst I can't do anything with the crankcase (the replacement cylinder head studs are on back-order until January) I have been able to assemble the crankshaft. A lot of time was spent making sure all journals and oil drillings were free of sludge and all journal caps have been refitted and secured and the drilling plugs have new lock tab washers. I'll have to oil it and wrap it up until I can put it back in bottom end next year (eek).
