Deadline to have it able to drive out of the shed is JAN 31ST

did drivers side pipes today, almost finished, but needed to trial fit to see what hits where.. Passenger side needs chassis notched for collectors to clear, and 1 pipe is just hanging out too much, so i'll mod it tomorrow.

the yellow is the section to be notched.
Drivers side fouls steering column, so i'll heat and hammer the pipe in so it clears. There wont be enough restriction in the pipe to cause a performance issue.

Well D day was yesterday, but due to a few late afternoons where i didnt get home early enough, ive been doing some catchup. Ive mounted the booster and master, and made up a mechanism that works with the offset pedal/ master pushrod. Front brakes are hooked up, but rears arent. Plan to fit engine tomorrow hopefully for the last time!!

Sump on and painted, carby and intake, well.. the gasket wont fit properly, so have to buy another one. Radiator cutcout is pretty much right, just need to drill holes so it can be mounted in place.

Holes need to be "elongated" as they are approx 3mm wider than the stub axle holes

Carby spacer doesnt work with this carb. Butterflys wouldnt open more than a fifth. Secondrys had no chance. had to take it off. Took me about 1.5 hours to clean what im presuming was the original intake gasket. Sky went really dark, motor got a tarp thrown over it.
