The state of it, I'll be glad when I can stop mowing around these things,- holdens waiting for a driveshaft after my foot slipped on the clutch.., Van's just slowly losing parts  

Today put the fuel tank back in, mostly installed the clutch line and mounted it with rubber bits, quite boring work but takes time.

I was planning on getting the intake installed today, but the van had other plans... when I installed my starter I realised I hadn't accounted for the space it took up... space my intake was occupying, well- a relocation of the idle circuit, pressure test, and it's good to go, I hope so anyway!

Another vantatstic day hah, got a lot done.

Had to move this guy a bit as my intake just missed it but when the throttle cable bracket went on it reminded me that space is not my friend here.  No worries though as the radiator hose diddnt like the angle it was on either, so moving the water neck made better space for both.

A bit of height difference here in the vans, as shown by the radiator.20201230_202353.thumb.jpg.96c06428fa3292e3014a3bf64c390684.jpgwhich used to sit in here20201230_204848.thumb.jpg.1bdd5df5586b8110d545c3bcf62e623a.jpg20201230_200330.thumb.jpg.c5fd546a205d5f0b2cf5969295c3c9d7.jpgso made some brackets that had just enough space behind the crossmember and suspension beam, as well as intercooler mounts...

No where near final but my goal was to have it driving by end of holidays so it's close, of course I diddnt compromise on the quality unless I know I have to buy parts to do it, generally it's just small things that will improve, those will come later

One more improvement, van had one cracked plastic monsoon shield, my 'luxury' sgl datsun van had stainless shields, so polished them with some autosol and installed. I like the look.

it'll tie in with the rear trim and door slides which are all stainless/chrome plastic .
