Build Diary 30/31-March-06

Baffle work around the oil cooler, riveted the parts together.

The baffle parts where the oil cooler fits. There are a number of reinforcement parts.
I primed the parts where they will be riveted together.

All the rivets around the oil cooler mount - fitted!

Note: The lower rivets had to be changed to countersunk with the heads on the cylinder side. Otherwise the heads hit the cooling fins of the cylinder head.

This angle is the optional reinforcement if the oil cooler is fitted to the baffles.
Baffle in place.
