Meanwhile back in Hartlepool I decided to give my angle grinder something to do so set to on the wheel arches...one side had the spikiest underseal I have seen...chipping it off revealed the original green paint...pity whoever did it never saw fit to do any other parts of the car.

Hi all
little bit more done towards testing the engine...I raided B & Q's parts bins for a couple of pipe elbows and a reducer to be able to make a circuit for the cooling system I might fit the heater in as well to give us a bit more capacity. A trip to Driffield provided a +ve battery terminal so I could complete the starter wiring a quick test has the engine whizzing over nicely. I still need to wire up the temperature gauge, fill the sump with nice fresh oil, fill the radiator with some clean water and antifreeze, jury rig a fuel tank and we should be ready. I will recheck the timing before all this.

I will probably rope El Tel in to use his considerable bulk to hold the thing down if it starts so a video is possible...will probably be next week now as all the little fiddly bits I need are of course in the unit at Hartlepool

Sandbags over the stand legs?   Anything you could ratchet strap it to?

Is there a garage you can wheel it into with a roof truss or RSJ to semi suspend it from?

Don used to start them sitting on the floor - it should be a smooth runner !!

man in a tent has got some oil pressure and wired the temperature gauge in but it gives fsd unless the case is earthed....oil pressure by the gauge is just over 35psi cranked rather slowly on the starter motor...checked for a spark and we have one...just the fuel and water now...no oil leaks as such so looking good. see before and after pics of oil pressure

You'll need some big brackets if you are going to test run it on a bicycle.

Hi all
