Ok... Nothing exciting to report!

But settled in my new house and finally have some garage space so will start cracking on with this again if I can find all the parts!

Donít forget to send your bottom pulley, flywheel AND clutch pressure plate and then rods and pistons if you want them doing too but I doubt youíll bother given they should already be pretty damn close.

painted the inside, fitted my dummy engine and adjusted how it sits and so the gearbox does not rest against the steering rack.

A few of you may have seen my comments but i'm initially going to get it back up and running with a standard NA engine while I try suss a few issues I had before and make sure the cooling and oil pipework setups are still good as I have changed both. Dont want to cook the new engine with a silly issue
