Working alone with only one good arm does have its challenges at times. The torque required to remove or tighten the crankshaft nut was a bit of a challenge when I had two good arms, but by bolting a piece of angle iron to the water pump bolt holes it made the job easy.

This is a flange that I made to mount my Mikuni carbouretor to the Metro inlet manifold.c8jTiEc.jpg

The tube has a 180 degree bend that came off of a rover V8 intake. Holding it up to the old engine to make sure it will all fit nicley.WieWuVv.jpg

But first I had to drop the front subframe, which needs a good clean up and a lick of paint.Cs2aQEc.jpg

The next thing was to remove those pesky springs. The suspension cone strut (trumpet) has managed to attach itself to the rubber doughnut like a limpet on steroids. Getting them out without parting them is not a proposition that I want to take on again. 4nw9XKy.jpg

Cutting rubber is a lot harder than you would think so i cut the aluminium trumpet in order to turn the doughnut in order to winkle them out.
