A little more progress today Ran the fuel Line through the car (to avoid damage on stages) even unscrewed the union out of the tank & managed to find a new olive at work ! Trial fitted seats and harnesses to make sure nothing fouls the fuel pipe
Axle should arrive next week so should see some real headway then I can measure up For the hybrid propshaft and get the hydraulic & cable handbrake fitted.
Took the pedal box out and de siezed the pedal pivots fitted the new clutch master cylinder Sending the brake master off tomorrow to past parts for recon Cleaned uo the 4 speed box ready for re fitting once the clutch is back Have a j type o/d box for sale if anybody wants one or would swop for a non o/d box
lsd/diff fitted back into axle refurbished fuel tank refitted & system checked for leaks (so far so good) clutch fitted to engine, non o/d box going in on Saturday at work and whilst its on the ramp the axle and shocker mounts welded on
hybrid propshaft should arrive back today lets hope I measured it twice !!
leaving the wiring jobs for a workmate to sort as eveytime I mess with electrics the smoke escapes from it.
the propshaft still hasn't arrived, apparently its gone on its bank holiday jollies around all the parcel depots in the Birmingham area, so much for a before 12 delivery saturday !
made good progress this weekend clutch & gearbox in rear axle & shocker mounts welded on H120 badge fitted to front grille spent nearly an hour sorting out the interior light I think I spent half an hour unconscious after banging my head on the roll cage for the umpteenth time !
Had a very short road test this afternoon just up the road and back Felt good but a bit flat power wise needs a rolling road tune to get the best out Of it Was surprised how light the steering is (still haven't got the new track rod ends on Yet The limited slip diff works well Very pleased with today's progress :)
Getting the wiring sorted and tidied up this afternoon for the lights, horn and washers/wipers etc hoping to get the rest of the rear brake pipes done tomorrow along with a few other jobs which are easier on a ramp then hopefully can gain an mot
