Pistons, rings and crankshaft

I had to go back to the shop to get the timing gear pressed on the crank; they forgot to do it before returning the parts to me. They used a 40 ton press.
Fitting the rings. I saved the number on the rods to match them back to the cylinders. Everything is new so it doesn't real matter, but it was useful to cut the rings matching each cylinder. I sort my gauges on the table; much quicker and easier to work this way.

The crank was very dirty inside. Here are the new plugs...

All pistons are in place now.
