1933 Chief motor arrives at the Speedshop
The '33 Chief motor arrived on wednesday, all crated up in a solid plywood box, opened up the box and pulled out the motor and laid it on a foam cushion to check it over. All looked fine til I turned it over and found that the rear cylinder has broken at the flange due to vibration during transit, this may have been caused by a hairline crack that seems to have been there for some time (judging by the rust on the faces of the break) . This will be welded back together then I will have both cylinders sleeved and bored to suit std pistons.
