I just had to find a few more parts before the rebuild, and I finally found a conrod, a set of headers and a standard flywheel. I didn't want to use the lightened race flywheel that I got a few weeks ago, as it needs a race clutch and would make it difficult to drive on the street.
I've got a new ball hone, just waiting for the rings bearings and gasket to arrive from the US

Well who cares about such tiny details ? ;)
What matters is the story behind it and the progress to see happening - at least for me LOL
Nothing beats some good old tinker time o old cars and nice engines if you ask me.
Would still love to get my hands on a 60's bettle for a full restauration but they are getting rather rare around here now and even a total wreck costs more than ordering the entire thing in spare parts and panels ....
