Thanks for the offer but the motor seems fine it ran on a float chamber full off fuel with no smoke or noise so it will not be coming out. This is only a light weight tidy up as you can see the pan is good and has had money spent on it but not used for years.
  the body needed lifting as there was no body seal and with only 4 bolts holding it on it made engine access easier for a start up test.

Well done and so deserved.

Looks like a decent wad of notes which I expect you will largely put towards more cleaning products for your buggy.

My buggy was in the top 5 cars, won a plaque and some cash. Was really surprised as didnít expect to win anything considering all the cars there.  8).

This could be a long job due to engine lifting and straining, thinking my body is telling me to stop lifting long blocks onto and off the workbench, may need mechanical aids for any future lifts.

Let me know when you want to lift the engine and I and possibly Jayz will come down to help you  ;-)up

ignorance is bliss and most bits would pass mot as security is the only check not the quality of the security. In my 38 years as a vehicle examiner I have seen some horror stories even from iso certified suppliers / vehicle manufacturers as well as the repair trade.

Have you thought of creating a "Wall Of Fame" on which to display the stuff you come across?    I suspect there are a lot of home builds out there with this sort of "craftsmanship".   ;D

Forgot the front axle mounting bolts 2 X  original ones fitted diagonally and 2 X 10 mm el cheapo mild steel extra long ones in the other two holes with nuts on the rear.


Nothing the matter with the threads so just fitted 2 correct ones

fitting longer bolts with nuts is fine but you need to drill the damaged threads out of the headstock tubes so they go through and tighten correctly and at least 10.9 strength not mild steel.
