More Smallblock Stuff

Guzzi, in their infinite wisdom, painted the inside of then smallblock engine cases. Nice.

I also just checked ring gap on this 10k mile motor. 0.028!!!! It should be half of that! Luckily, Deeves in El Segundo (5 miles from home base) still had rings in stock for it. That saved me from ordering from Italy. Thanks to Gordon at MG Cycle for the tip.
