Something for the Weekend

After a chance discussion on the Isle of Wight a few weeks ago, this turned up on Thursday -

It appears to be in fair condition, but the only way to tell is to fit it and see.

Prior to installation, the manifold bolt threads have been cleaned out, new bolts sourced, made new manifold gaskets, switched over the pulleys, swapped the oil feed adapter, cleaned out the metering pin and flushed the internals with petrol.

After a lot of cursing, eventually got the shorrock installed with belts and manifolds. Battery is now on charge for another attempt at firing up.

Throughout the whole process, I've been ably assisted by Callum who was having more fun blowing up rubber gloves.
