    Itís really good to be back on the tools and making some progress on this car. The unfortunate reality of project cars at times can be lots of idle time due to other life commitments.
    Only a couple of hours today but good progress made

    Another couple of hours on Sunday morning.
    wishbones separated from struts, driveshafts out, all items off the gearbox except for the reverse gear selector cable.
    So next spanner time the box will be out.

    I'm happy to not have found any surprises yet.
    Body underneath looks very good except for some minor poor jack use damage.
    Gear oil was very clean.
    Inside inlet manifold and head ports look very clean, and gaskets look fresh, I'm wondering if the head has been done at some stage.
    Radiator looks quite new, front brakes look good, all suspension bushes look good and tight. All boots are in good condition steering, ball joints and driveshafts. steering light as a feather!

    Box out and turned out that the thrust bearing definitely was the culprit of the loud noise, so very happy to have found that. Checkout the pressure plate fingers!!

    Not so happy with the flywheel tooth missing, but thatís sorted thanks Graham good parts trade

    A good clean up is in order and back together. I have all my bits including machined flywheel so happy days!
