Got the nearside exhaust wrapped this afternoon to help stop the oil lines getting too hot.




I'm wondering if I have put the fuel pump a little too close to the hat exchanger though. The bend on the  fuel hose was a little too tight too I think.



I just need to mount this monster!! I'm thinking about possibly mounting to the chassis in front of the metal mud guard, although the guard will need trimming to allow access for the 'IN' hose and the pressure sensor.

It is. I might need to speak to you regarding the need for a stone shield to protect the oil filter it's going to sit just behind the nearside rear wheel.

It's not touching but it is close. I can slacken off the bracket and turn it a bit. I think it may still require a heat shield there.
Might be able to sort with a bit of exhaust wrap.

I'll mock something up out of cardboard Dude. The last thing I want is a stone to puncture the filter! Rolling Eyes lol!

After a considerable hiatus from this I am now back on it!
Everything was going swimmingly until the onset of the cold weather and me dropping my bloody worklights.
This lead to the old girl living outside all winter, up on stands on the drive.
I have had to sort the garage as it was like a bloody hand grenade had been thrown in there!

So, we're back on it.

First off I painted the inner face of the stone guard that I'd had made up.


I then mounted the filter and attached the pressure sender. It's all bit clumsy but it'll do the job.






I am now waiting for some p-clips to arrive from ebay so I can route the oil lines to make sure they aren't flapping around like a dogs cock in a sock.
Once I'm happy with the route I'll cut the new lines to length and fit everything up.

As Shorty as pointed out the fuel line is close to the exchanger so I plan to sheath (snigger) the line after rotating the fuel pump a bit.

Then it's a case of finishing the worry gauge loom and wiring up the fuel pump feed. I've got some flexi trunking to run the electrics in, over on the right hand side of the engine bay to tidy it all up.

The fuel line behind the fan housing needs clipping in place, and the throttle linkage on the left hand carb needs swapping out for a left hand linkage as they are both currently fitted with a right hand set up.

Throttle cable guide then to go on, all bolts/nuts to be checked for tightness, charge the battery and fit up the rear tinware and we might, just might be ready to drive her off the drive for the first time in a year!
