    Nice progress. What's the hurry?
    Enjoy and good luck with it Phil.
    New engine looks nice and clean. Have you done any work on it?
    Don't throw that old 12v away!!

    Hi John... New engine has only had plugs,clutch, clutch slave cylinder, cam belt and a clean up as it has done 56k apparently.... So minimal work.... The old 12v has been claimed by Jerry Bailey... I just want to get Nellie done reasonably quickly so that I don't have too many jobs half finished !!

    Frederic..... It's a standard engine so only about 30bhp more.... But the extra valves make the engine more responsive.

    Michel.... You clearly don't know how fast / slow I work !.....will aim for January but don't hold your breath!
