    I let a mate look at it a while back but when he saw it he said he wasn't compitant enough so i decided to get it done profesionally later in the build

    Yeah i only refitted the gearbox and engine tempory to make room in the garage as i had the 2a in bits aswell as the 90 i had at the time but will be sending the gearbox away to have the work done

    Once i've got the bulkhead and put the bodywork back outside to give me back the room in the garage i will remove the engine and gearbox again, send the gearbox away to have it recon'd and have the trannybox uprated and paint the engine, was going to paint the block BMC engine green but have decided on black with the rocker cover and inlet manifold already painted silver, i'm going with black silicon hoses with painted silver steel pipes rather than have it looking boy racer ish with blue silicon hoses and i plan to re-use the original air filter aswell.
  8. Best place to buy a bulkhead from

    Sorry me and son got our wires crossed as regards the bulkhead being galvanized, all their bulkheads are galvanized once they have been refurbished and will be collecting it along with our old bulkhead to part exchange in 3 weeks time and not 2 weeks as I said before.
  9. Best place to buy a bulkhead from

    Son rang a few places up for me whilst I was at work yesterday and out of the 4 places he rang only one answered the phone ( Ashtree ) and they said they can turn one round for us in two weeks, it won't be a galv one just a recon'd one as having it galved would make it to expensive so have decided to go with these and collect it in two weeks time

    Thanks for that Dave, i'm pretty sure the blades are inside the casing but it was something I never thought about when removing the heater and painting it, I need to get all the bodywork back outside again now i'm back off my hol's so once I've done that I will have a look at it
