    Time to come clean

    Well probably the worst kept secret on here but here's what arrived today, together with the engine I've been rebuilding during the last month or so.
    Another Lister Bell to add to the ongoing numbers.
    So, here goes with Build number 3. That will be one of each.
    Mick.

    Nice one Mick, looks like that previous 8 month build of yours has a challenger....

    Some interesting additions from mine.

    Ian, I think the next few days will be spent unpacking and working out what goes where before I even lift a spanner. Still I'm in no rush this time although I hope it won't take 8 months.

    It cannot have been that badly kept Mick, I knew nothing about it (so what's new about that then?). Good to see another one in the making.

    Well I never told anyone!

    Nearly one of each Mick, but I guess an Allora is a long shot, unless your name is 'Enzo'?

    Yes Chris,
    I think I'll just convince myself that the Allora was before my time so doesn't count.

    Nice one Mick. Will watch your build reports, and comparison to previous builds, with interest...

    Looks great. I'll certainly be watching how you get on with the build, see if I can pick up some tips for when I get mine.
    Is that a 3.0 or 2.5?

    It's the 2,5 unit with the 6 speed box. More than enough for the way I drive.
    How long before you expect to see your kit?

    Mick.
