So i've been making slow progress over the last few months as it been a never ending task of cleaning and restoring small parts to go back on the car. This week after coming back from my summer holidays I've planned to get in the garage an have a big push to move things forward starting with making the 3 main fuel pipes with the OEM spec pipe i ordered in from the States a couple of months ago.
I soon had these made up and installed.
Once the fuel pipes were in my task for today was get the engine back in, it took a lot longer than the removal as I was desperate not to chip any paint in the engine bay.
Engine mounts all ready for the engine install.
With the aid of the trusty fence post i lifted the shell up enough to slide the engine in and with few blocks of wood and a couple of trolley jacks and the engine was back in position.
The plan is now the engines installed I can drain the oil and refurbish the oil pan, which looks a rusting mess.
Engine finally in after 20 months tucked under my bench.
