Started to rough out a set of temporary alloy rear engine plates to mount the Triumph gearbox behind the Scout motor in the Junior Scout frame. A lot of chain drilling, using a standard engine plate as a template, a bit of work with the angle grinder and they are shaping up. Once Ive tried them for size they will get dressed up with a hand file. I plan to use drilled steel plates for the final assembly to add some support to the lower rear frame.

Richi Foss in Inverness did a crackin job of replacing the broken fins and sorting a missing corner on the mounting flange on both the 741 cylinders going on Juniors motor and the repairs to the 1933 Chief cylinders , he also de-raked the ex Chris Ireland 741b frame - really impressed with his workmanship
