Well done fella about time :mrgreen: , i dont think you have to worry about ragging her straight away bert, i could be wrong but depending on how much you torqued it down you may have to re torque it again after a few miles, plus id check the valve clearances aswell, have fun with her

hay fella long time no speek.

shes back and better than ever. did have a little miss hap though. came from the mot center and 400 yards down the road the wheel fell off! well was held on with one bolt. phoned the garage and went a tiny bit mad  :twisted:  he was with me in about 5 mins sorting it out while i watched.  :lol:  no damage done so very happy. :D  :D

things left to do now are....
fueling is all over the place, going to find the page that will tell me whats what in a min but it gose as low as 10 and as high as 15 so i know thats not good.

put spoiler on
CLEAN HER!!!!!
o and shes running quite hot!!!

apart from these small bits she gose like a rocket!!!!! :D  :D

Woooo! Another one back on the road  :D
I haven't read your thread in a while, but it's good to see you put the hard work in.
How hot is it running? It could just need bleeding up again.

its been 35 weeks as far as i can recal. lol way to bloody long if you ask me!!!

well within minutes its up to hot. if you think the gauge has 4 bars. off, first bar (flat) then second bar (about 7 oclock) then third bar (about 11 oclock) then last bar (dead)  
its up the the third very quickly.
i have fitted a low temp thermostat to. i may not have enough coolant in there???

what do you think??
