Got a few outstanding jobs done. The first was drilling the gearbox mountings. This would have been much easier from the inside out, but instead I jacked the gearbox up and drilled from underneath. Careful measuring being the order of the day. Unsurprisingly, the tunnel top panel was still out so this will need trimming.
This was duly filled and bled. It’s tougher than I remember, but then it’s a completely different master cylinder. Once the prop is shortened and attached I’ll find the biting point then fit a bolt behind the pedal to stop it being pushed too far.
Finally, I temporarily fitted the rear arches and fixed the rear of the tub into position. I clamped on the arches, checked they were central to the wheel, re-checked the 400mm measurement at the boot, then checked it all again a few more times. Fortunately, the offset of the wheels guessed at when choosing them turned out to be spot on. 15×7, et40.
