He was in charge of engine manufacturing.Someone who had been on a tour of banner lane told me how a nut in the gearbox had to be torqued and was essential it was done. Went out on the production line and someone picked up that the nut was not checked with a torque wrench just a bloke with a big spanner and a lump hammer. This was brought to the attention of the tour guide who picked up a torque wrench and checked about 6, all were spot on. Think maybe it was a party trick for the tour guides
Was father in law at browns? What did he do there
Without stripping and refitting it's difficult. How much experience did whoever fitted them have and how much confidence do you have in them.How do I know they are fitted right way up and oil rings alternated?
Never short of parts books or maintenance manuals, he would just ring publication and have them sent to his office, he got me the piston tool and a valve seat cutter, but they were well used and being replaced by new ones and would have only ended in the scrap bin.Bet that was useful back in the day
