Right I spent the last couple of days putting the engine back together surprisingly there was a complete set of Allen (cap) bolts for the cases lurking in a old ice cream tub so jobs a good un!
Although torqueing   down the long bolts that go through the cam shaft holders, the head  the barrels into the crankcases was a bit nerve racking- trusting the wrench to "click"while waiting for that feeling of stripped threads is not one I recommend to anyone.
With a bit of luck she should be back in the frame tomorrow and up and running by the weekend :001:
