Knuckleheads and baby bump

We have been in fin repair and valve seat removal mode at the shop.  It's amazing how beat up these heads can get over 60 to 80 years.  As you can see there are a few ways to get the fins back on.  Sometimes you cut them out of regular steel and weld them on, sometimes you build them yo with steel or silicone bronze rod or you can also use old pieces of cast iron fins and braze them to the cylinder.   The next hurdle is grinding and sanding all of them down and blending out the repairs.   

Brittney is 38 weeks and doing really good. She has just as much energy as when she wasn't pregnant.  We are going to have our son at a birthing center in Wisconsin in about two weeks. I am so excited to meet him.  It's crazy to think that I am planning having a son right now.
