Those looked like offset dowel pins in the block, if so for those who do not know they are used in high end engine shops to move the combustion chamber or typically to unshroud a valve inside the cylinder in order to increase flow or increase agitation or swirl.

Most of the carpet is in just lacking one piece but have to install couple sheet metal nuts first. After mocking up the rest of the interior decided to replace dash covering. Should get that done this weekend. Those Brits must have been small guys. Working the carpet into the foot box corners created some flexibility challenges. Water and oil temp gauges out for refurbishment and the others are getting new lenses etc.

A little progress. Mocked up most of the interior but will have to remove when installing the engine and trans. Still have to do some wiring and small interior stuff. Just got the custom pushrods for the roller and plan to get back on the engine soon.
