Well managed to get a few hours this morning. Also had a visit from a fellow builder.
Replaced belt and gaskets on the engine, new clutch and modified block for starter motor. A health coat of high temp Matt black too - if things stay still long enough in my garage they end up painted black!
I opted for keeping the 2.0 flywheel setup (as I already had the new clutch, spigot bearing and release bearing to suit).
Having acquired a tiger shortened sump I also installed the shortened oil pickup.
Mated to type 9 easily with no concerns - apart from the dubious 5 bolt securing....
Dropped into chassis but may need to rethink the mount position on exhaust side as I am tempted now to move alternator under exhaust manifold to make way for the charger.

Total Spent so far - £xxxxx
Last Purchase - Engine mounts, steering wheel, slave cylinder.
