All sorted now, thanks to my Dad.....all up and running. Few bits to sort out still, align exhaust properly, clean up brake discs, and a few other bits before it gets painted. :D

I noticed you turned the oil breather around, was going to ask if the bonnet would still close. The car's looking fantastic.

Also changed the clutch quadrant, pita of a job....but car now drives.

Got a bit hot though, must of had an air lock....made a massive gargle when I switched off. Let it cool down, and topped up water. (hopefully be ok now). Also battery is flat, not charging so got that to sort now. :D
