Pistons and rods fitted to crankshaft! The kit says no glueing required however I glued the piston halves together as I recon if not they could become loose and clog up the mechanism!

Cam, Cams, rockers fitted to top of engine block! The red pins on the top of the rods are just a push fit so I glued them to make sure they dont come off!
