Offered up, fits perfick,



Sprayed, filter mounted



Fitted in position



Plumbed in, hoses are a close to the exhaust, but the wrap should help keep them protected partly from heat.



Induction and extraction to be fitted tomorrow!

Hi Al

This may sound like a daft question but will you get any noticeable heat transfer from the connecting points through onto the metal plate (head stud fixing)? Just a thought.

Once running you could always check to see if you get any transfer.

I thought about that, that's why the plate is sooooo much bigger than it needs to be, partly so it shields the filter and lines from the exhaust, and hopefully it should act like a heat sink and radiate any of the transferred heat away.

It's alive! Again!

Changed the gearbox oil this morning and fired it up this afternoon, smoked like a bitch to start off with, but that was all the oil in the exhaust left over from the incident!

Ran it in the garage for about an hour and a half to warm it up properly, but i think it may be a bit warm at 220 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to tinternet, normal is at 180-210 f, it was running in my garage, on a warm day, with no bodywork or tin on the back end, so I'm happy with it a bit warm
In that circumstance, I forgot how noisy bloody chromoly pushrods are as well, runs ducking lush now, the revs pick up quick with the balanced crank, I just need to make sure the carbs are balanced properly, check the clutch adjustment, check the ball joint boots, then mot it.

Right, fitted the rear valance back on, makes a huge difference to how the car looks



Rear tin on as well



Checked the ball joint boots as well, this is the average state of them!



All replaced now, pics to follow when I've replaced the track rod end boots too!

Boots done, so far this weekend I've inserted some Riv-nuts in the inner front wings to secure the cables for the front indicators, and one for the speedo cable, I've fitted a new E clip on the end of the speedo cable instead of the tie wrap that was there before, I've put some more Riv-nuts under the rear seat to secure the battery straps a bit better than self tappers.

Just got to enlist the help of the Mrs later to bleed the brakes, then I'm going to book it in for its MOT!

Brakes bled now, few per MOT checks, and a blown fuse for the sidelights, and a loose indicator lamp, and everythings hunky dory.
Got quite a bit of travel in the brake pedal though, I'll have a look at adjusting the pushrod later.

It's alright mate, I sorted them!

MOT today, and after taking it for a bit of a run, I know I need a new pulley seal, and I have a worn rear o/s wheel bearing.

But apart from that, I've had a double thumbs up from my friendly mot man!!
