    holes only line up one way providing plate is right way round,when you fit the belt you need to ensure pulley slots allow enough advance ie clockwise movement to adjust the pump, the plate is also used for the cam

    the cut out is where the timing pin goes through, the elongated holes in the plate is where the pulley bolts go through and the pulley should turn freely to allow you to time it all up.

    Gave the chassis and wheel arches a coat of paint just to protect the galv.

    Not far now. I put my engine in today, you wouldn't believe how much easier it is without any bulkhead, gearbox, bodywork or radiator in the way. The downside is that all of the above are at least six feet and many bolts from where they need to be for next week.

    I feel your pain. It’s funny towards the end of a project I keep looking for things to do to keep it going. About time I just stuck the engine back in and got it back on the road.

    Anyone know the part number for the bolts that hold the pulley to the FIP? Can seem to see them on the FIP diagram in the parts book

    No, don't be silly, you have yet to color code each individual bolt head, stop looking for excuses to waste money on diesel :p

    Haha! I did waste an evening making a spread sheet of things to check I’ve done up correctly before putting back in.

    Engine is in. It was a bloody nightmare getting to out the workshop, up two sets of steps, round my back garden and out the back.

    Too late now, but I discovered that a skateboard is not just another kids toy that need clearing up. They seem to be incredibly durable since I've used the same one to move gearbox/transfer boxes and a 600lb engine around on really rough concrete and it was just a cheapy. The lean/steer is handy too.

    That’s interesting I used a 300kg trolley from B&Q and it crumpled like a tin can. It’s why it took us 5 hrs to move it about 50m

    Which way round do the pipes into the lift pump go? One has an arrow on it on the lift pump. Is this the one to the FIP?

    Arrow is direction of flow.
    No pipes go from LP to FIP, go to filter then FIP.
