    I got a set of Wurth swivel head ratchet spanners the other day. Had a job that wanted the ratchet spanners for. So I'll just grab the 14mm... oh no, Wurth is European: 8, 10, 12, 13, 17, 19mm. The 14mm is available separately. $$$$ :-(

    Zip lock bags with numbers on the outside seems to work ok for me.

    Sectioned pill containers are also good for little bits and pieces like jets and valve shims.

    The morning started with 13 degrees, overnight rain to settle the dust, and a visit from the postman

    Unfortunately, during the trial assembly, a 1/4 drive 12mm socket went into the bowels of the engine, it was found resting under a piston,
    snuggled up alongside #3 little end, so trial assembly #1 morphed into trial assembly #2,Luckily, both cranks now spin freely,
    now I can split the cases again, apply a smidgeon of Yamabond to the crankcase faces, torque down (again) ,,but, the wind has returned,
    so that's tomorrow's job
