Pump and Paint

Well i`ve been at it again and have made some more progress the oil pump is fitted plus a new filter and as the mechanics of the engine are all there i like to prime the oil ways, ends, rockers etc., to achieve this i drive the oil pump with an attachment that fits the lug on the pump drive with a battery drill you can also check the pressure relief is working etc. with a manual gauge fitted where the sender is, all went well it is suprising the torque required to turn the pump at 1000rpm which equates to 2000 rpm of the engine,i have also finished the detailing on the rocker covers and fitted them then more cleaning all the wheels and pulleys for the front of the engine are now ready for paint plus all the sundry brackets for the transmission etc. are painted ready to fit just the gearbox to go now just a few pics of the work.
