A photographic diary
This photographic record started life as a personal aide memoir to enable me to re-assemble components in their original form. Rolls-Royce never issued a workshop manual for the Phantom III which meant that detailed information was not readily available. The Phantom III Technical Society has published a series of articles with general guidelines for rebuilding these engines but there is no single source containing detailed information on all aspects of a complete overhaul. Having met these hurdles, and spent several hundred hours researching how to step over them, I felt that it may be of service to others intent on treading this path if there was a route-map to follow. This is how the web-diary came into being; I hope that it proves useful in showing how the different pieces fit together - whether for interest, an overhaul or general maintenance.
For the definitive summary I hope that readers will buy the book "The Forgotten Engine".
