With regard to restoring the carbs - I stripped mine down, had the bodies vapour blasted after checking wear of throttle spindle bearing surfaces (it's very difficult to clean them properly by hand because of all the nooks and crannies) de-rust the fittings (Deox C) and have them re zinc plated. Get a service kit. Polish dashpots

OK so today I needed to remove this part.
Not an easy job.
Had to take the whole dash apart

Bit more progress.
Yesterday I managed to split one of the engines down. Reason for splitting in situ was so that I could transport it. I don't have a crane at each location even so the block is still a blooming heavy lump!!
Started at about 11:00 and finished at about 15:00. All went reasonably well apart from finding out that the timing chain and gears should have been removed whilst the Flywheel was still fitted!!
Anyway here it is split:
