RH cylinder block at SVR Bridgnorth in July 2015 after being

returned from repair to its exhaust passage. Unfortunately,

although this repair was a success,it has since been discovered

that a serious crack exists in the main cylinder bore which

cannot be rectified and this means the block will need to be

replaced with a new casting. A new CAD drawing is being

prepared so that the cost of a pattern (probably polystyrene)

and casting can be obtained.                 (photo:   David Cooke)
