Week 17  This week we get the crank case front

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Not much to say about this one.  Give the parts a clean, and sand or file the mating surfaces to give the glue a key.  Then use super glue.  

The areas that the cylinders sit on do not seem very flat.  This is due to limitations of the moulding process.  I may flatten these with a file - depends on how well the cylinders fit.  I'll address this when I assemble the engine.

Hot tip of the week

It's really important to roughen metal to give a good key for the glue.  You get a much stronger join.
