Not quite finished. Just the brake servo and master to go in and brake bleed.

I've just finished replacing all the front swivel joints and cv joints.

interesting you leave the starter, distributor and oil filter on yet take the rad off.  I think with remote gearboxes, you need to tip the engine back

There were three of us on hand to lower it in so i had two guys on either side of the engine whilst I operated the crane.

the rad was removed just to make it a bit easier to manoeuvre and so i could get the engine mount bolts in.

There was no need to remove anything else.

 

Cheers

Hi John.

Yep, just accident damage on this one. Should be wrapped up by the end of the week.

Ouch! Maybe you had better check the brakes as well!

And well done on getting to 9000 posts. An amazing achievement and dedication to the cause.
