Triumph Spitfire Engine Rebuild #15 - Progress Snapshot

Not that you are all chomping at the bit to hear, but I have gotten everything back from the machine shop and am well along with engine assembly. I took my kid's GoPro to the shop and taped a lot of the stuff and am learning how to edit everything.

Unfortunately, since I knew I was taping, I didn't take as many pictures, so a "static" post wouldn't be that good right now. I've corrected that oversight and am now taking lots of pictures again.

Hopefully within the next few days I'll get a post up to update everyone.


The block; all pistons and the camshaft installed.

The worked head. All valves in, getting ready for paint and then final wipe down.


  1. Sweet, I look for updates almost every day. Keep that momentum going.

  2. Thanks, John, I appreciate that!

    1. Thanks, David! I keep forgetting you've got a car now and I'm delinquent in checking on your progress and discoveries.

    2. Oh, when I wrote "same here" I meant "I look for updates almost every day." :-)
