With all the things that have been going on with Devon D Day i think i may be excused for not updating. But things have been happening, the chassis has been sprayed and flipped the right way up. the steering box has been fitted as well as the pedals, brake master cylinder, brake pipes and clutch linkage. The biggest step was the fitting of the engine, gearbox and transfer box. This didnt go without hiccups, the driver side engine mounting bracket which came bolted in place on the new chassis was not at the right angle and when the engine was bolted in the angle was so acute that it ripped the rubber mounting in half! After much head scratching and looking at pictures on the web we decided to remove the bracket and alter the angles, after a bit of bending and trimming it fitted fine.
Of course the other bit of news is that Santa is now making Summer visits. It was a bugger to find mince pies in June but the mess the reindeer left in the road was perfect for my rhubarb!!!!
