All I need to do now is connect that to the high pressure pipe, the outlet of the fuel rail to the swirl pot and thats the fuel done. So close to being able to start her up!
The tape I mentioned....
And after. I was going to paint the aluminium support brackets but they give a nice shape through the grille.
I couldn’t do anymore as I’ve been sent the wrong pipe for here so called it a day.

I had a tiny leak from the new sump I’d fitted so needed to remove it and refit. So out with the engine / gearbox combo, removed the sump and I could immediately see what was wrong, I’d clearly caught the gasket as I was installing it which knocked it out of alignment - causing the drip.
Engine out and sump off
And the finished car at the end of the day (not a finished car but getting there now)
A quick job for this afternoon. I removed the existing manifold and added the GBS manifold so I could make a template for cutting the hole in the bonnet.
Once I’d marked everything up and cut the hole, I then vinyl wrapped the bonnet in the same green as the scuttle. It came up very nicely.
