I wasn't to keen on using a nut and bolt as I didn't want it to look untidy I instead decided to use a tap to put a thread into the existing mounting holes and use my...

    Made a start on the brake lines to run to the rear disks. they need to run through a bias adjuster so I routed the lines in to the cabin I Slowly bent the pipe around a socket to give me a nice bend with out a kink and used my flaring tool to Finnish them

    Decided I wanted to protect the engine as much as I could hearing all the talk of rods and ringlands going from knock and such I didn't really want to go down the route of a piggy back ECU as thy don't have much if anything in the way of protection so speaking to a few people I decided to opt...

    It's a bit of a pain to pick a location for the return to sit as It sits inside the sump with the locking nut not flush as the welded type ones do if it doesn't work I'll eventually change to a welded type Making sure it didn't contact the internals or the dipstick tube was my main worry...
