Crank pins receiving attention

George using a micrometer to chec the roundness of the rear LHS crank pin

As it is 6 thou out of round he uses a file then a stone to remove 3 thou from each side

It's now round to 1 thou which he can remove once the new bearings arrive, George is currently in the process of doing the same on all other crank pins
