    LET update

    Just bought this well cheap too!



    Standard one at the mo as i just want it up and running!

    Beds still a mess though its not turbo powered at the mo as i took it to regals the other day so its still in my boot


    contains the vacuum pipe, clutch, head cover, throttle body, oil cooler, afm and other random bits


    Above is a cupboard in my flat with random bits on the shelves
    Top shelfulleys, engine mount and the bit that goes from the vacuum piping into the inlet manifold
    Middle shelf:starter motor, ac pump
    Bottom shelf: altenator, spark plugs and the ecotec spark plug cover

    next to it is my exhaust



    the block with the sump and the shiney metal bit removed and cleaned with GUNK (a godsend!)


    here is where the rest of the bits are hidden from my landlord! under there somewhere is the head and all the wiring and a driveshaft
    under the white mille miglia box is the F23 which is due its de-GUNKING but its still leaking red oil all over me when i lift it!

    ill get more pics as requested. next weeks job is refit the cams and rebuild the head, ill take pics when i do it as i cant be assed to rummage through the boxes!

    pretty long post, fingers have cramp!

    Set of Samco induction hoses on E-Bay mate, saw them and thought of you but didn't copy the auction number. Quick search for Samco should bring em up though.

    I've got a skateboard in the garage and I can normally get hold of some big boys through the agency....


    Looking like good fun though mate. Once the bottom end and gearbox is all cleaned up make sure you give it a nice coat of silver paint or something so it stays shiney looking when it's in the bay.
