Great news, did plan on having the bottom end dynamically balancing to promote life of the engine.

Front Bulkhead Panel

Hi Chap

Great looking project and some quality work being done - Keep it up.

Anyway, noticed on one of the pics that you have fitted a new front bulkhead panel. Just need to know where did you source this item.

Cheers
