Wedge Engine Update

Bit more stuff done today got the main battery cables made up and fitted, machined up a new water inlet spigot for the plenum water jacket got that fitted plus the hoses to connect it up, got the breather hoses all in place and the fuel reg vacuum pipe also fitted the tank filler with nice new hoses and stripped the ECU out and inspected the soldering but to my surprise looks absolutely pristine, also got the new servo elbow fitted I will sort the push rod out tomorrow and get that fitted so coming along nicely.

Cerbera LS3 Engine Install

Good day today started by cutting out the rotten corner to the nearside front outrigger and replacing with new tube all looks well, then got the engine box in place and lots of measuring both chassis and body eventually got it where I wanted sitting nice and low in the chassis and a bit further back than the original, all works well with the planned two only seats being further back in the cab. I have fabricated the majority of the offside engine mounting all the final welding and gusseting will be done when the engine is out again but pleased with todays progress.
