Looks a little bit better. What are the little white dot stickers on the chain cover you may well be wondering.

The bearings are all fine. The engine ran well before I stripped it, apart from the head and barrels being worn.
So, about the little white dots. They’re targets for a 3D optical digitizer. Basically it’s a scanner. The scanner takes scans of an object all round all over, just like taking pictures. The software recognises the white dots and as long as there are at least 3 dots from a previous scan the software can link the scans together and create a “cloud of points” that represents the surface of the object and it’s accurate to about ±0.01mm. Then the software can join the points to make a “wire mesh” of the surface. This is then exported as an STL file that can be used to create 3D solid CAD models which can then be used to create CNC programmes for machining the object or for tooling to make the object. It’s reverse engineering.

These are the scans I got. Unfortunately the tank's a bit battered and I don't work there anymore.
