Ha ha! I've finished for the weekend.
The tinware was finished after I had to get a second lot powder coated after the rear tine was shagged by someone who thought they could weld it.
The final bits for the fuel pump loom arrived today so I'm up in the morning, getting her out on the drive and up on stands/ramps.
Finish mounting the pump and filter. Then run the new fuel lines, and wire it up.
Then it's engine in, new throttle cable to go in too and finally the exhaust on.
Looking forward to hearing it purr with the VS fitted.

Had a few distractions today but made some progress.
Fuel pump is fitted and plumbed in. The wiring is all now in place too, I just need to decide where to fit the priming switch.
Ran out of daylight today so just have to sort the priming button and then I think I'm ready to get the motor in.
I do have a slight issue with the carb linkage fouling the tinware but I think it can be 'persuaded' to clear it.

Oddly, it is filthy in there, the pics make it look clean and the firewall is freshly powder coated.
It's full of sand and dust at the moment.
I'll give it a clean up and a coat of wax to spruce it up before the engine goes in.

Last little bit of wiring to sort behind the dash tomorrow afternoon and then I need a hand to lift the fecker off the engine stand and in.
Then it's connect the coil and alternator to the fuel pump, remembering to fit the temperature fuse to the coil wire.
Then it's time to fit the last 2 bits of tinware. Tweak the fan housing again to clear the bloody carb linkage.
Serpentine belt on, mount the oil filter, cut and install the new oil lines and install the oil pressure sender.
Wire the sender and the temp sender and it's time to fire her up again!

I'm thinking about fitting two 'skid plates', mounting them either side between the engine support bar and the chassis.

D'oh! Schoolboy error!

No clutch bolts......... F*$& and C%@ts!!!

Going to get new engine bolts, for the gearbox and the engine bar and some extra fuel line.

Last things are the exhaust fitting kit and a spare serpentine belt

So although I meant to get out there this morning Mrs C has arranged a double glazing bloke to come and talk to use as we want replace our scabby front door
I didn't get out there until 2pm, but the got the clutch sorted, the front tinware bolted up and then with a bit of a struggle I got the engine in the engine bay.
I need a hand to get the heater pipes lined up as well as the engine/gearbox.
Stefan is popping round Tuesday after work so that should be sorted then.
Just need to sort the fuel hose from the fuel pump to the carb, the throttle cable and the electrics.
Then it's on with the oil filler, the exhaust and the rear engine bar.
New oil pipes to be cut to length once I sort the route and whether or not the oil lines need protecting with exhaust wrap from the heat of the exhaust.
Hopefully I'll knock a hole in the jobs Tuesday night and then finish them off Friday afternoon and get it back down on its wheels.
This is where it currently sits.....

Looking good dude.
Before you go any further, I would recommend using 8mm internal diameter fuel hose to the carbs.

Final stretch now.
New fuel line to run from the pump, worry gauge wiring to sort, ht leads to fit and route, carb linkage to adjust, oil filler to fit, breather to fit, oil filter to mount and new oil lines to cut and route.
Just going to keep chipping away to get it done.

Just ordered some heat shield and also some exhaust wrap to stop the oil lines getting too warm as they are going to have to be run pretty close to the exhaust / heat exchanger on the nearside.

Also had to source a new oil filler as the stock filler doesn't quite line up with the hole in the aftermarket tinware.

I know I could do it all quicker if I threw it together but want to get it done properly

Exhaust wrap, aftermarket oil filler and left hand carb conversion kit arrived today.
Will's got a match in the morning but roll on tomorrow afternoon and I can get it all fitted up.
I'm going to try and start the exhaust wrap curing with a heat gun.
