So I picked up the Norton engine today!! Im totally stoked to get it all back together, but I was hoping to maybe get an extra pair of hands on Tuesday afternoon to help out. Let me know if any of you are available. The barrels were honed, bead blasted, primed and painted. The head was bead blasted and had complete valve job done. Pistons were cleaned up and I put brand spanking new rings on them. Its time for her to be one again. I also got a Hastings piston ring book… so if anyone needs rings let me know and I can look up the part number to order it directly from Hastings…. Every engine imaginable is in the book.
