More free time means more time to finish projects. First up, porting out the extra LIM I have. Ran it threw the parts cleaner, was a bit dirty.

Already opened up the inlet.

Then I just need to polish it all up and it will be done. Might put this up for sale when done.

Guess I should get started on these some day.

I think I might pull the valves and springs today, then get these cleaned up and start the porting.

Then I'm hopping to get going on this. Need to tear this all the way down and rebuild it.

It'* way to nice out to be cooped up in the house, I would much rather be cooped up in my shop. So I went out to get started on those heads.

Off with the springs.

Going to have to pick up a few smaller bits to get down in there and port it out.

This is for reference for those wanting to port out their LIMs. You don't go more then .9" wide, and 1.9" tall, and this is why.

I'll keep that in mind. Should be ready in a week or two if I have time to finish it.
