This weekend we had a good couple of days working on the 264, we managed to remove No. 5 , No.11 ,No.12 and No.13 cylinder heads.
No.12 Cylinder head proved to be quite tough to remove , we pulled it off until flush with the head studs,
then made a new beam so we could push the head off from the main engine casing.
Cylinders No.s 5 and 11 came straight off with a slide hammer, these cylinders had a lot more oil present.
Here you can see the supercharge inside the rear casing, it looks in very good condition.
Also we had a look inside the magnetos , they are absolutely in perfect condition.
We then pulled off No.5 Cylinder, even though it looks bad, it came of with little effort, just used the jack once to brake the hold on the rings then used the 3/4″ UNF threaded rod to tease it off.
Cylinders 11,12 and 13 ready to be removed.
Only a few more to go!
