15th week engine rebuild

This week i will be posting three entrees .  Each will discuss a specific part of the restoration.
This first entry is about the engine.  The OX-5 engine is a aV-8.  While we are waiting for the engine to be rebuilt in California , Bill is attempting to build an engine from the many extra parts here at the museum.  This Saturday I saw him working on the oil rings.  In these pictures you can see him filing the space in between the rings.  The rings are tapped into the cylinder, measured for gap then adjusted.
Pressing the ring into the cylinder.

Grinding the space between the ring.

Checking the gap in the oil ring.
