    Loom all taped up ready for fitting

    So the engines all plumbed up and everything connected up to the gear box

    Jobs still to do
    Fitting the looms
    Throttle cable
    Fill the cooling system
    Put some oil in the gear box
    then its just a case of adding fuel and it should bust into life

    Got the main loom and starter motor fitted
    Then i had to see if it turns over, which it does

    Next up, get the rest of the wiring in, fuel pump and VSS, then see if it will run

    Being trying to fill the coolant system today, was going great until the heater matrix started leaking
    Looks like a dash out job, should be fun

    Re: Another project............T3 this time

    Well been hard at it on the T3 over the weekend and i'm 95% finished on the mechanical side of things

    Refitted the new heater matrix and dash, then spend about 2 hours fully bleeding up the cooling system fixing little leaks here and there
    Fitted the accelerator cable and tidied up all the loom and cooling pipes underneath
    Modified the induction pipe and sorted the breather pipes out

    So now only got a little list to finish off
    Both the clutch and brakes could do with bleeding again
    Fit the exhaust which I'm having made
    Do a could of little welding jobs

    Then it should be MOT time
