Right, got a good few hours work done today :wink:

Engine is in at last, gear box needed some fettling, bit of grinding on the input shaft

it was a bitch, but went in eventually :mrgreen:

Got a few niggles to sort tommorow

- 2ltr starter motor needed
- longer bolt for starter motor
- exhaust muffler fouls the engine bar, need to get an adaptor flange made up
- mount electric fuel pump
- adjust left rear adjustable spring plate
- lower front beam a few inches :wink:

i figured it probably was seeing as you hadn't plumbed it straight into the petrol tank... how much was that set up out of interest?

bought the eber for about 220 off ebay, def worth buying an exhaust silencer tho, cost 25, but dont half cut down the noise, and it gets roasting hot in no time
