That view down into the crankcase is very close to how my AC looked. The main difference was that on the AC, the timing gears were inside the crankcase itself.
As to the colour, I think it looks good and as you say, it'll be different to most on the rally field.

Yes its quite crowded in the crankcase and I have spent a while making sure the crankshaft is in the right position as its very close to the cam lobes .there are locking nuts on both ends of the crank one has a circlip type arrangement that locates into a hole in the shaft ,not seen one like this before .



the other side is a threaded bush with a grub screw and lock wire .all in all a well engineered engine .



The timing gears are very well made with fine teeth unfortunately as is common with a lot of French engines of this era no timing marks at all ,there is some tiny ones now that I have done during dismantling .

well a few more bits have been reassembled up to now its been straight forward and simple , setting the crank position in the crankcase and getting the end float correct was tricky as the crank throw is very close to the camshaft ,now its all timed correctly the timing cover is back on .



I was shocked when I first painted this engine orange but the two black flywheels cover most of it so it will tone it down a bit .turning my attention to the governor side I've placed the fan back on for the photo there's still a fair amount of work to do ,the original fan pulley had been lost and a piece of steam pipe hammered in its place so a new pulley must be made and fitted to the fan .I do like the simple look of this engine

Coming together very nicely.

By the way, I'm pretty sure there was a similar spring clip locking arrangement on the track rod ends of my father's 1925 Delage - must be a French thing!

yes Nick its some thing I have never come across before it is a very neat method no sharp edges etc like split pins xx I have to make a new shroud for the cylinder head and find a suitable fuel tank the original was a large type I will be fitting a smaller one so you can enjoy the engine better .

It is also the manner that the oleo seals on the Dakota main undercarriage is locked, so not exclusively French.

The rebuild continues with the installation of the flywheel and governor housing witch is very well made using thin castings that are well machined to form a neat assembly . The strange bit is the choice of operating mechanism very exposed to damage especially when you see how well the rest of the engine is designed

Looks like they built the engine then added it as an afterthought!! Nice though, will be a talking point.

As the engine is not far off time to look at the carburettor. Its a solex a nice chunky brass one the strange thing is why have the flange on the inlet pipe 90 degrees out and use a adapter plate its the correct carburettor .




Rather than use a butterfly it uses a shaped cylinder which rotates in the body ,its a very well made piece of kit heavily built not like there later alloy carbs .
