scratches on the bulkhead are where the stud at the back of the filler cap neck was catching. need to get some new bolts for the engine and gearbox mounts as I mangled the gearbox one replacing the gearbox mount and the engine ones were missing

I first drained the sump as the oil likes to leak out when the engine is at such a steep angle. Using God's gift to the man on his own the engine crane I was relieved to be able to get the tail of the gearbox over the front and into the engine compartment. From there it was gently jack up the back of the gearbox and roll the car or push the crane and with a bit of judicious levering it was in. Main snag is a cable bracket on the D/S inner wing which catches on the accelerator pump body on the carb, also the air cleaner had to come off as the engine went further into the bulkhead.
I'm not sure where but I did point out once before that I'd worked for Vauxhall Motors at Luton for 24 years, and back in the 1960's when we put power units into the engine bay we had  a piece of equipment that fitted tempoarily into the propshaft aperture in the gearbox, this had a pair of hefty roller bearings attached and the whole assembly was rolled into place before lifting up from underneath to connect everything up.
Gradually after that all the running gear came along a conveyor in the correct places and the complete trimmed body came down from the trim shop above and was dropped straight onto the running gear and connected up.

had a little tinker with the gear linkage and after a lot of fiddling about got the bolt in and could select some gears. The change was mega stiff and only 3 and 4 would select. it was the link thing binding on the distributor dagnabbit! So a) assembled wrongly or b) needing adjustment
took the link off and it seemed wrong so I thought I would slacken off the lock nut and adjust the length a bit. Hmmm... I adjusted the length OK it is just a bit too permanent is all see pic
Now we can either weld a nut onto the end of the thread sticking out (and remove the broken part)of the thicker bit and screw the other bit back in or find a new one.

I was trying to get the propshaft back on the other night and came across another problem. The end of the gearbox on a series 1 is alot smaller than the later ones so you have to change one of the spider things on the propshaft

Mystery solved? seems the drivers side engine mount spring has snapped allowing the engine to drop about 2" on that side hence the gear linkage fouling... now if only I had known that before I "adjusted" that link

Changed the mounting still seems the same will have to see what effect replacing the broken link has

think I have spotted where I went wrong with the gear linkage. an earlier pic in this saga shows the new set up I took a picture of the original setup (for reference porpoises) but comparing it with the later one it is different see below

I remember now I did this bit blindfold with only my left hand.... that's my excuse. I am quite chuffed about this as I was concerned some major misalignment was at work and the prospect of 3rd and 4th plus reverse not good.
have to mark some exam papers tomorrow so might be the weekend till I can swap the surviving link around. I have a nasty feeling I have snapped the one that should go where the unbroken one is. might be time for a bit of bending of a rod or something.
