    Hi Guys!!
    I've lost track of where I was up to with the car now?
    The Photobucket thing got all out of shape when it changed and most of my pics went off line?

    I even had to re do my password to get back on here? I'm sure I managed to post up some updates a while back but they are not here now.

    Anyway! I seem to be back on here now and I'm beginning to move on with the car again. I will attempt to add a picture and see what happens

    Welcome back Pel! I thought about you a while back and hoped all was well. Last thing I thought I remember was you shelving the SBC and were moving into an LS?


    Just kidding. Haha

    Hi Folks!
    I'm back again. I'm not writing 5 pages for a full catch up. I had a full weekend off work last week to figure out a few problems and get them solved. Then last Sunday the engine was back in with fully welded mounts etc etc. What I found quite amusing was, when the engine was finally fixed to the chassis rails, The old rear engine steady for the Rover bolted straight into the Brodix head? and the Front engine steady bolted into the same hole on the front of that head

    Yesterday was starter motor and alternator. It actually took 8 hrs in total, but the two items are now settled in there. I had the battery on trickle charge for 7 hours but ended up fitting a jumper pack. After 3 years, the old battery was showing 7.4 volts. I had already primed the engine several times a few months back. But had also had it drained with the sump off for 2 days last week. The distributor was already in and timed, so I thought I would take a chance and see what happened. After 10 seconds of cranking with the plugs out, she made 45psi on the gauge which I was very happy with I must say. Today was supposed to be another workshop day, but we had Faith for a sleepover last night so Grandad and Faith were in the paddling pool most of today instead

    Great to see you back and you've gotten the SBC in the car! Great pic of you and the princess in the pool. How warm does it get for you in your summer? Take care Pel!

    Hi Ryan!
    We had a great summer this year with temps reaching up to 32C or 89 -90 F

    I bought the new pool with a solar heater and an electric heater. As the sun was out for long periods I got up for work at 5am and turned the pool pump on via the solar heater panel. When I got home from work around 5-6 pm I could jump in the shower and then straight into a nice warm pool with the family. Our warm UK summer was the perfect run up to me and the wife hitting the Canary Islands for 2 weeks with the princess. Hell! I was already tanned before I got on holiday this year. The car is coming along ok. BUT! my work has taken its toll as I have missed so many weekends this year. So I have decided to take the whole of December off work to do home DIY and work on the MGB. My boss was a little flustered when I told him I wanted 4 weeks off. But I had given enough notice for this in line with company rules. Plus I had worked so many weekends that after my 5 weeks annual leave during 2018 I still had 12 weeks in lieu due to me because of weekend works. I will use December wisely to do as much as I can on the car. And I will start next year with at least 5 weeks time in lieu still in hand? The Princess Faith turned 5 years old a few weeks back. Where the hell did those 5 years just go?? She has now left Nursery school and is in infant school / Reception school whatever that is? Mothers estate has now been settled so most of the problems in my life are now gone. I am using this Sunday as a car day at the shop. Me and my mate just bought a 4 post ramp for cheap. He will sort out the hydraulics while I wire the thing up to our 3 phase supply. Another friend is bringing his TH400 so we can drop that into his Land Rover with a 400 CI SBC fitted. The newly refurbed Mopar block will also arrive on Sunday so we can start the rebuild of the power plant for his 1950's Ford Pop. On Sunday I will be removing the last of the wiring I don't need on the MGB. I am pulling all the old wiring from the engine bay and removing all of my old nitrous system so I can start next year with just the 383 on pump gas only. And then move on to C16 or better to max out the new engine via the new Digital 7 MSD thing. I have decided to make a complete new nitrous system for the new engine when I'm ready next year. Im not sure if I'm going twin plate or DP nitrous yet? Best wished to all you guys. Pel x

    Nice update glad this posts finds you well. Faith being 5 years old blows my mind too, as it seems she just joined the family such a short time ago.

    Welcome back Pel! 5 weeks is very good! I don't get my 5th week for another 6.5yrs. having a month off would make it real hard to go back to work! It sounds like you have some good plans and good projects ahead of you. I can relate to how fast time seems to go. My oldest is going to be 8 in January. It still seems like she should be an infant!
