Only early 807 engines had the high compression, large valves and large ports that people associate with a "Gordini" engine -- BTW, Gordini actually had nothing to do with the 8-- series engines.  An 843 can be brought up to "Gordini" spec by fitting larger valves, porting the head, fitting h-c pistons, etc.

My 821-30 engines also coming along and getting it ready for machinist, but I need to order gasket for liners , paper type. The shop will set the liners and send out cranks and cams. yes 2 each of the 821's.
Heads now completely torn down and accessing conditions. The original engine block will be reinstalled with parts from both. Only after rebuild will I consider undertaking the 843 , but will start looking for the parts.

 Finished the lower plate in the air cleaner and readied new plate for welding back in.

On a separate note purchased a rear luggage compartment found on eBay after 25 years
It needed a few repairs but coming along. Other items completed were radiator fan assembly and demister fan

As stated earlier I finally found a tray for aft compartment, here some pics of
The progress of filling all the holes and cracks. Primed today and I will post those soon.

Wheel wells and tunnel pics and progress. Wheel well undercoating was terrible to remove.
Newer Honda wheel well material will be attached to keep road noise down.

Also front turn indicators need to be redone because they were glassed with fabric and they are
Lopsided. So I made the inserts and will install correctly this week.
