Rolls-Royce 20hp engine assembly

By Chris McPheat, Feb 11 2020 06:45PM

A bit more progress on the Rolls-Royce 20hp engine. I had to take the camshaft back out as it was tighter than I would expect, a bit of fettling on the rear 2 bearings sorted that and with it back in the engine I could fit the cam followers and the cylinder block. Pistons and rods next, then I can refit the sump. I sent the crankshaft damper to Fiennes Restoration, I have the tools to rebuild a 20/25 but not the earlier low-inertia drive. That should be back before the end of the week.
