    Picked up the new fuel tank Today (well most of it). Its just tacked toether to see if it is possible to get it in and out ok, before the final welding.

    A couple of obvious items to make sure that are installed before the manufacture of the exhaust system is the oil filter and also the rear anti-roll bar.
  5. Thermostat Housing Installed

    As mentioned at the AGM it was recommended by myself that it would be good if members started using the blogs for the build history - So I will lead by example and now start adding the build record. Any interesting info will remain in the forum threads..................

    All the O-rings arrived from Alfa Workshop so these were installed and lightly greased to allow the installation of the thermostat housing. Discovered also that the thread for the thermostat housing is M7, after ...
