    Well things are slowly moving forward! I have now sorted out all the bolts on the engine now the replacements have finally arrived. I have also sorted out the various plugs and fittings for the manifold in preparation for the plumbing!
    Got the clutch in and plumbed it up. Why not, it should be possible to test drive this car without the body! It seems to work OK but have been without any happy helpers so not been able to check properly.
    I have also mounted the gearbox properly having altered the chassis to clear the bottom of the bellhousing.
    Here is the slave cylinder all bolted in and bled (7mm bolts wtf, who keeps those in their workshop!!! Me now!!

    Gearbox mounts



    Flexible clutch pipe on to chassis - this pic also shows the new chassis rails and the dreaded bolt I had to take out of my FE bolt box having stripped the threads on the 7/16 302 block!

    So much work to do and I have been messing about fitting these lovely little billet rocker tops!!!! Smart though, courtesy of Summit Racing



    Taken a lot of hours to sort out the alternator bracket - clearly not finished, lots of tidying to do, but getting there! There is no room in these cars!!



    Special pulley, special water pump blanking plate, special swivel thermostat housing! All £ and all bloody necessary otherwise it is going to be rubbing me in the back!!! And I am still going to have to modify the chassis a bit to get enough clearance on the alternator. Not going to finish it until the belt comes (on order). Will know where I am exactly then.



    Onwards!

    Stupid question - Chris, where did you order your alternator belt?

    Once upon a time I'd go to the nearest motor factors and say "I need a belt X long please!" but these days your choices are places like Euro Car Parts who can't do anything without a reg or.. Halfords

    I resorted to ordering one from Rock Auto with some other stuff..

    Aaron, Bought the belt from BearingTech. Most of the bearing suppliers do belts, I also use BearingBoys as well.
