After about a month of head scratching, I finally got the clubman running there.

Issue was a weak spark from the ignition coil, but still a spark! Not bad after years of not running

Will run the brake lines in and need to get hold of a battery cable too as theres no room under the bonnet for the battery.

Might fit the exhaust first. We'll see

I admire your patience, if it was me I'd have the battery strapped to the top of the engine and just use the handbrake haha

It was close to that lol. I had a quick test of the clutch to make sure I was happy with the biting point and so on, then I welded up the arm I made onto the clutch pedal (previously it was just tacked on to see where the bite was and ensure enough travel)

Means that I can now rebuild the peel box and fit the brake master cylinder to get some working brakes

Glad you have got it running. It's always good to hear that when moving engines from one car to another.

I have a battery lead if you need one. Just PM me.

Also good to see another copy of my clutch cable setup too!.

Cheers for that. The trouble is my engine has lain in my damp shed for 4 years, hence the issues.

For ten bonus points, Can you tell what I used to modify the clutch pedal?

Thanks for the offer of the battery cable, I've managed to source one from a club member locally

Took the day off to make some progress.

Started by tidying out the garage on Tuesday night in anticipation:



So now that the engine runs, I'm happy with the clutch and I've fully welded on the clutch arm for the cable clutch





Other jobs included properly fitting the new ignition coil to the back of the block, fitting the pedal box and brake master cylinder (Clevis pin took about two hours) fitted the expansion tank and made brackets, made a bracket to attach ecu to bulkhead, made a bracket to attach hp pump to the gearbox, ran in the battery cable so i can have it internally, and bolted the steering column on properly.



All coming together, just need some more time
