3 useful hours in a shed

Managed to finally get all the required parts to complete re-assembly after my cam swap and gearbox rebuild.

7.30pm  Block has been cleaned and cam timed in previously - studs polished on the wire wheel and installed hand tight
The part holding me up was valve springs and retainers - received Wednesday afternoon
valve springs on the inlets have been swapped out from jag springs to something with 1/2 a working coil less.
Onto the block
Different (shorter) pushrods - these are 8" early Mk2 2000 pushrods - the 81/8" 2500PI one is at the bottom to show the difference. These were required to account for the larger base circle of the new cam
Head torqued to 75lb/ft and rocker installed and adjusted to an initial 0.013"
Waterpump and alternator back on.
Setting up the timing for the injection
And on with the Metering unit
Exhaust next - always enjoy working with this bit
Long after the pain of paying for this manifold you can enjoy looking at it
All fitted ready for the inlets - almost no need for double jointed fingers
Always try and keep these as a set - saves a lot of fiddling about
Looking better - bit of fiddling to synchronise everything - unfortunately my Jig is elsewhere currently
All ready for a initial start-up this side
123 Tune dizzy installed just need to set up the static timing before it can run.

10.30pm Time for bed now - good 3 hours work.

Tommorrow nights installment - gearbox!
