Another one saved from the rust bin by Master Engine Re builder Peter Valicek.
Samples of other Taipan engines in Peter's collection.
This sad looking specimen is what he is attempting to salvage and turn into a runner once more.
This is what it should look like.
A sample new engine complete with the box is pictured above.
Since the rebuild candidate is a Marine Engine we show what it would have looked like in the picture above.
The sad condition of the liner is pictures above.
Scratches and groves are clearly shown above.
Before polishing liner condition.
After rework condition of liner shown above and below.
