That's got nothing to do with Ferrari!

I miss working on ICEs. I can only imagine the luxury of using those engine stands. When I worked
at an engine reconditoners I stripped the engines on the floor (on a thick blanket) and put all of
the parts into mesh baskets for the over-night soak in the cleaning vat. Hard on the back doing
that all day!
At least they were assembled on a low table. My main job was stripping engines, machining ring
gaps, cutting valve seats, re-facing valves and 'planing' the head and block surfaces. Then honing
the bores and lapping the valves in. Most of the assembly was done by our aero-certified engineer,
especially the race engines.
Seeing them lapping the valves and honing the bores (and cam tunnel) really bought back memories.
