Ordered the new door rubbers and rear window rubber last night. Going to check out a running 12a J port today. Hopefully it’s a go.

Right so a question for you 12A experts. I’ve heard you can “flip” the sump and run a front hump sump as a rear hump sump and just redrill the holes. I lined it up to test this theory and quickly found the oil restrictor at the front hits the sump. Is it just a matter of notching the sump for the restrictor? At this point I may just fabricate a whole new sump. I just need to sit the engine in the hole to check clearances before committing to a design.

help!

I’m starting a slow hunt for one of these grills if anyone has one?

Quick update

exhaust bolted up

heater hose plug in

oil in the engine

coolant in the radiator

not much left now, basically mount and plumb fuel pump and do the wiring of which most of it’s there. Exciting times!ACBCD3B8-2F51-4B8E-B9D0-D0E446AAD813.jpeg.09bb3eaee4dcd93127145cc7bf8ef31a.jpeg

For some reason this thing came with the wrong alternator pulley. It had a 13A belt pulley and the rest of the engine needs an 11A belt so I ordered a new dual row pulley from franklin engineering. Top notch stuff they make and seriously reasonable prices for quality Nz made products. Ordered an oil sender block at the same time to run my oil pressure and temp gauge senders. Will fit that in the next couple of days.FE8B51DA-B3A4-4FAE-A62A-258CA32D25CE.thumb.jpeg.605a9b6bc774e9a3ef2525dcfd45a0e9.jpeg
