    You look fully trolleyed, ventured into workshop to look at things and lasted about an hour.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    I managed to loosen the bottom hose on the radiator enough to drain a few litres and top up with fresh anti-freeze, run till hot, by then had enough, too cold. Will have to go back later to check levels and top hop though.

    Visible progress, I've put new shells in the big ends and mains, pistons are all OK. Need to work on an idea for the bulkhead stiffener, maybe from the A pillar to the bulkhead ?
    Then give the engine a bit of head and add the other ancilliaries

    Always looks better in the pictures rather than reality, but thanks anyway Adrian.

    One month on, slow progress, but it certainly won't make Stoneleigh this year !

    ..........................cos that's the way they were Lol

    Seriously (see post #25 pic)there's an eyed bushed end, and t'other end has a single threaded rod with two rubber donuts , nuts and locknuts which attaches to the spring plate.....it's the only way they fit !

    However, another thing I've noticed today - I put the prop shaft back in as it came out with the sliding bit to the front - the build manual says it should be at the back.

    Dunno why, but I guess someone will know better than me.

    Methinks someone ordered new dampers & didn't spec which end out of stem & eye should be which.
