matt, yes i did check the breather, i can remeber it being mentioned beofre so checked it was clear
chris, i got the sump and end case gaskets, plus the input and gear change seals. didn't bother with the diff seals (wonder if they will leak now
) as i didn't want to get too involved with stripping it down too far. fingers crossed
thanks again for the material
slow progress, but progress nonetheless
got the fuse box sorted out this morning, had to shorten a few wires and re-route a few to get them all in but it's pretty good now
then fitted the wiper motor taking care to seal up the spindles, don't want any water getting in
speedo cable next after cleaning years of grime off it, connect all the earth leads up, and fit the battery tray.
had cleaned up the rest of the gearbox linkage parts and primed them first thing so did them all in the black as well as the gearbox sump.
fitted the control unit for the central locking system, nicely tucked away behind the switches so it should keep dry and out of harms way
couldn't resist hooking up the battery to see what works, not everything is connected yet but had to have a look
ignition on, turn wiper switch on, nothing
then i realised it has a strange way of turning the wipers on, twist the stick not down like a normal car
cue silly grin as the wipers work perfectly
got a few more things working, at least i can now see exactly how slow i am
all the brake parts i have on order should arrive by friday so may get the gearbox build back up then, mayeb get it back in over the weekend
