Starting to get the engine bay ready while the weather is horrible, quite comfy sitting in the engine bay tinkering!

Trying to get all the bits in that will be awkward with the engine in.

Going to have to clean the heater blower again as its sat on the shelf too long, is bugging me now so much I might take it back out grr !!

John, it looks like the front part of the blower assembly needs to be turned to the next screw, if you see what I mean. The bracket should be further down.

I see ya point Martin, that is how it came off.

I'll take it off and change it, and also give it a clean as it sat on the shelf to long.

Cheers Bud

John

Thought I'd get the pipes ready as the new rad is on its way.

Time to get the engine in soon and free up some space in the garage as want the interior out next.

Everyone moans about that, especially with new mounts! Personally i've not had a problem, just lucky I guess!

Is that Nightfire red?
