Hooray & Hoorah!
The gearbox has at long last arrived, I picked it up after work & as luck would have it I have tomorrow off, so I can get it straight in the car. The weather forecast say "current bun" all day tomorrow, so it should be happy days.
Equally good is the arrival of a set of motorcycle throttle bodies on a Zetec manifold with air filters., so my stock of parts for the engine swap is burgeoning.
Soon I'm hoping to ba able to post a few more blat reports, but there's a few hours to be spent in the garage first.
