A useful afternoon. Sorted out the accelerator linkage so I now have something approaching full throttle opening. Finished off one or two minor jobs in the engine bay and completed the wiring for the map light. Having sorted out the levels for the tub to get the doors to fit, I made up some shims for the front tub crossmember to outriggers and fitted them. I also whizzed round nipping up some bolts underneath where oil is sweating and fitted the front panel which joins the bulkhead to the transmission tunnel. Nothing to photograph, really, though.

Any chance of a picture of your linkage please Fred.

It's been a while since anyone has wanted a piccie of my linkage, I can tell you! But, yes, I'll take one in the morning.

Much appreciate it, hope to be back in the man cave this week, and that's one job I would like to complete along with the dash wiring

Here are a few photos of the accelerator linkage - on which I now have full movement from closed to full throttle... which is nice!
The first one is obvious - the thing to watch is to get the cranked cross-shaft in a suitable place where, when it turns, it doesn't foul either the heater hoses forward or the wiring for th heater backwards and yet still has full movement.

Well, thanks, Bob - the Forum members are a huge help - for advice and inspiration. I had a look at some of the old strip-down photos tonight and noticed a suitably similar one taken in the winter of 2015/16 to compare with one I took today. It's come a long way... if a bit slowly.

Thanks for the accelerator link age pics Fred, I can see my first mistake :o and the rest will just general aide me tomorrow or possibly Thursday depending how I feel about the dash and the wiring loom in the morning. Still cross with myself for obtaining the wrong speedo and choke cables though, oh well, into the won't need those stores department.

Great work Fred, the last two pics really highlight the work that goes into a rebuild. Keep up the good work.

Well, one of the downsides of posting photos is highlighting your mistakes to the world. The eagle-eyed will have noticed several in my photos over the last couple of years. Things in one photo aren't necessarily in the same place in the next photo! Most recently - the radiator overflow bottle had the pipes on the wrong way round. I often only notice myself when I am looking at the photos in the evening and I nip out the following morning to sort it out. I'm hoping my neighbour will be round tomorrow afternoon and we'll have a go at bleeding the brakes and clutch. So, stand by for more leaks!
Fred

The big freeze isn't expected until the weekend Fred, so no excuses for leaks, oh sorry forgot you live in the land of leeks :roll:
