As reported a few days back engine disassembly has begun in earnest with spades of poor workmanship and general lack of knowledge by the previous mechanic (and I use that term loosely) on display.
What we found today is nothing short of astounding and proof that some people should not even be given the responsibility to feed donkeys let alone work on high precision Italian sports cars. Behold the main oil pickup tube as we found it when separating the engine block from the oil pan.
At present all words fail me and I find it criminal that certain people continue to put out garbage labour like this. Luckily the engine is in the hands of an expert and we will be working together to make it nothing short of perfect.
