Will post up video soon, but a very successful day. Can't thank everyone that took the time out of there busy schedules to help out enough, and for those who couldn't make it today I totally understand.

A little concerned when she didn't even try to start, quick troubleshooting found a negative battery cable wasn't connected. Then she came to life. Still a few odds and ends to tie up, but she sounds great!

Holy cow, I completely forgot to pass the cd changer off to 1 of 40--was he even there? No clue who that is...
Great to see everyone and be able to take a small part in the project--Mike, congrats on the running engine--can't wait for the first road report.
BTW if you should need something to drive to work on Monday you can borrow the Disco--just lemme know and you can come grab it tomorrow.

1 of 40 wasn't there. We were in his garage getting his 110 200tdi conversion running.

more of the same stuff......for any future reference if this is a first time job, i.e. no one is a genius with said engine, it is wonderful to have the same truck on hand to look at how it should be. Doesn't have to be the same color

Congrats Mike and the die hard Nova HH boys. The Rover gods were good to us yesterday allowing to 200's to crank up in a single day. This is a classic so I have to share this. After about 8hrs in yesterday Bobeck and I realize I forgot to order an egr blanking plate. SHIT! But in true Bobeck fashion he looks around the garage and says...let's make one out of that left over copper pipe. I'm like..What? So he grabs his Dremel, I grab the extension cord. Dremel is dead. Plan B = Hacksaw. 30 mins later he drops the mic.

Ha! Bobeck is teaching me a new way to roll.



If you've seen this film it'll all begin to make sense.

Congrats Clay . . .

Got a bit done, but not all I wanted. Exhaust, brakes bleed, motor mounts corrected.

Still need to figure out the Vdo speedometer.

Seems the clutch may need a slight adjustment also.

Charles since you requested it ...

Mike, that sounds great. Nice work, and congrats! Good luck with the VDO stuff--nothing like doing four projects at once.

Also. don't forget to adjust the shoes on the left rear brake--I had to back off the snails all the way to get the drum on . . .
