Fitting up engine

Its flying along now!! Had a few hours on it on Wednesday evening, and with the help of Bradley's muscles.... the gearbox is in!
Now bolted up, rear mount rebuilt and fitted and the engine and box now sitting in the right place.
This afternoon I managed to get the alternator fitted, the PAS brackets and PAS pump on (having first remembered to put the battery in first!!, then the belts, the carbs and elbows, the radiator, the fan shroud and the starter motor.
It doesn't sound like much, but it really is starting to look like a car again!!
The list of things to fit and fix get shorter and shorter............ 

Next job is to measure by how short the Stag prop is, so it can be lengthened. this car originally had a 2.5 prop, but later built cars used lengthened Stag ones as the U/J's are bigger. I had the gearbox and the diff built with Stag flanges for this very reason.
