SAM Hit ‘n Miss Ep. 4

We continued to make parts, steadily getting closer to completing the engines. By now, we were on day 5 of our venture, and half way trough my short stay. Things were looking good and we felt confident to finish the engines before I had to leave.

Both of the crank case covers, front and rear, are finished.
