Old enough to know better. Young enough to do it anyway.

Thanks, got the plan, now have to print it. Spoke to a print shop, they implied that they could print directly on balsa, not sure if this is how it is done.

Nice to get a dwg showing it assembled as I'm not able to figure out the helical spring i.e. how it assembles into the engine

As others have observed, the rear cover or backplate has been installed incorrectly. Unbolt it and insert it with the flat that has been machined in it uppermost so that the piston clears when rotated over bottom dead cernter.
As for the starter spring, remove it and throw in the bin. You do not need it for a Merlin diesel plus it will never work as you have put it on and doubt it is an original item, probably off a different engine.

I have reinserted the backplate. Using a paper gasket for the backplate now but wonder if a gasket is really necessary?
