Yes! I drove it up and down the road today. Huzzah! (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Next week I can get a WOF and Reg and actually drive it on the road again. I must've last driven it in March. With.Drawl.Symptoms... (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)

The rear carburetter was annoying to fix, but I feel much more able to deal with ye olde cork seal SUs as a result. Tonight I will have another double check for leaks then hook up the choke levers, and fit my new K&N filters. Next week I'll have to plumb in a pipe to one of the air cleaners for the crankcase/rocker cover breather system.

The solid-state voltage regulator & C45PV6 generator are working well. The regulator gives a much steadier charge at any engine speed, but it cuts in a bit later than my old set-up.

I topped up the steering box with Penrite Steering Box Lube while the generator was off. Hopefully that will help lessen the very slow leak the 'box has.

The new engine mounts? Well, the engine hasn't fallen out yet...

Overhauled gear linkages - seems to be a much more positive change which is good. 1st gear now seems to engage more fully. Hopefully that can help it last a bit longer.

Slightly weepy frost plug - I gave it a few whumps and I'll keep a close eye on them all. Getting to the one on the back of the block will be a pain (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Wahey! WOF and reg. today, no problems (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
It is certainly smoother and better at low rpm with no pinking at all so far.
I strongly suspect that the mixture has been incorrect for many years due to the cover-plate over the balancer thingy (inlet 'manifold') not sitting correctly.

It sucks nicely through the K&N filters too (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Still to do:
- sort out the choke levers better - they are not going fully home yet
- sort out the crankcase/rocker cover breather. It goes nowhere at the moment...

A very tidy job. It'll be conkers before you know it!
