Poppet Valve Engine - Cylinder Liner

This was machined from mild steel, bored and then honed with emery cloth soaked in oil. I don't have any images of it being machined and the ones I have are of it pushed into the cylinder.

The liner has a step at the top that locates in a recess in the cylinder.

The liner finishes slightly short of the bottom of the liner.
