The Paintshop just rang I can collect the car tomorrow - I am sooo excited.
Not long to the Classic Car Show, so the first job of the day was to rebuild the FF bits, this necessitated making my own gaskets, as my local Motor Factor doesn't stock FF parts!
Firstly hold the gasket paper in place using a couple of the bolt holes
then lightly tap round the edges with a small hammer
and low and behold you have a correctly shaped gasket, repeat the process on the inside edge, mark the bolt holes with some more hammer taps, and then cut them out with a sharp stanley knife.
4 hours later after much cleaning a complete transmission
Then after some more work all bolted upto to the engine - I had to do this twice as I dropped one of the torque converter to flywheel bolts behind the flywheel, which necessitated removing gearbox and flywheel to retreive it - I was a little more careful second time around! I don't believe that I wanted to do that!
Here's the modified starter fitted and a view of the front propshaft
Anyway all complete, needs a little clean, and a car to put it in.
11 hours worked, 8 today, 3 on the FF strip in the week, so total hours now 692
