well, you're all pretty much on the mark, a mans shed is his castle
and i can now see the floor of mine again too
so, sorted through all the stuff and really happy with what i've got.
best of all seems to be the holy grail, well was when i was trying to find one recently, a 16V oil pump in good condition
big-wing sump turned out to be an 8V one, should have noticed the lack of oil return connections
could be adapted with fittings made but it will be going on ebay soon to get soem more funds back for col
so once i got the shed back in order i had a look at the pedal box than was kindly donated by rich.
at last i could finally get the holes drilled out for the mounting plate and start to think about getting things back in.
the steering column mount though i think was a sprint one, fitted around the pedals perfectly but had the wrong angle for where it goes up to the screen.
so had to have a little modification, a cut and shut job
also had to weld another washer on for the top mount.
may make the steering wheel a tad lower to what a sud usually is but that's no bad thing
must really get cracking now, have some things to be getting on with at last now, just got to get myself motivated
