More good news.  All the babbitt bearings have been poured and machined.

Here are the bearings inserted into their races.

Meanwhile, the crankshaft gets the connecting rods installed.

The two halves are given a sealant.

And the crankshaft is lowered into place.

The bottom case half is installed and the perimeter bolts tightened.

Tomorrow, the cylinder banks will be installed.

We are getting closer to completion!
