All the holes line up. Thats a relief!

Waiting for some M7x1 cap screws to arrive (long story...)

In the meantime, there's a crank to clean and re-plug before being built up (Oettinger cranks are drilled differently to VW ones) and the case needs some windage detail work, mostly sharp corners dressing off.Image

Crankshaft washing with brake cleaner. Hand brush, bottle brush, pipe cleaners, air line. Twice.
Then it got new aluminium blanking plugs fitted, staked in and it was time to check the front bearing orientation and fight with the cam drive gear...Image

Cross drillings re-plugged and new rods torqued (with assembly grease on the bearings, of course)
The balancing grinding might look dramatic but it was checked and found to be spot on.Image

After a delay due to a gear cutting "adjustment", blow me if I didn't guess at the cam gear position and the timing is spot on :shock:

You could not make it up! It was literally a case of "crank about there, so cam needs to be there-ish, looks somewhere near"
Found TDC on #1 and then wound it round to find peak lift. 112 degrees. Perfect.
I had to check it over and over, couldn't believe it.

A bit of good fortune is always welcome when developing one off specials. I can't to see this on the road.
