  • The three top cylinder heads have been fabricated, drilled, and mounted.
  • The reversing link assemblies have been completed.
  • The piston rod to piston connection dilemma has been resolved with the use of small jam nuts.
  • The valve eccentrics were completed with the final machining and drilling.
  • The link blades have been fabricated.
  • The valve eccentrics have been mounted on the crankshaft.
  • The link blades have been mounted to the eccentric straps and fitted to the reversing links.
