Hi all.

So you've just joined, why not say a few words to introduce yourself - a bit about you, your car - whatever!

Well I've taken it out and completed the change of seals and gaskets, but then struggled for a couple of hours trying to re-align the engine and type 9 box to no avail. So I'll give it another go tomorrow and if successful then another several hours rebuilding the engine bolt on parts to get it ready to refill with oil and give it another try. Wish me luck !! :)

It's all back together and apart from oil being pumped out of the dip stick tube that I hadn't refitted correctly all is good, dip stick now sorted and the garage floor is dry again !! :D It lives !! :D

Good feeling. I save my choicest words for getting the engine to slot back on the gearbox input shaft!
Yes I've been drinking, what of it!!

Got feed up with all that struggling years ago so I usually take out the engine and gearbox as a unit so can fit it together much easier.
Locost book chassis, Under reconstruction :D :?

Yeah that would have been my choice if I had one, I had to take it out on my own with only a chain winch lightly clipped onto a roof joist in the garage, so I didn't want to push it with the weight of both of them. It was a learning curve though :)
