Mastiff engine

Ive been working in the Mastiff engine for quite some time, got it to pop couple of times and then decided to dis-assemble, clean and do some final adjustments.
Now will proceed to re-assemble and get it running again.

Engine is an L.C. Mason design from 1973.
Engine specifications:
Number of cylinders:                     4
Capacity :                                             25cc
Bore x Stroke:                                   3/4" x 7/8"
Valve diameters IN/EX:                 5/16

Minor changes to original design made were :
Ignition, CDI with Hall effect to replace contact points.
Lubrication, fully drilled crankshaft Vs original part drilled crank, for improved lubrication.
Camshaft was built in a single piece hardened and ground Vs original independent cams fixed in a shaft with Loctite or pins.
