A few more hours spare on a Sunday afternoon and the exhaust system, starter motor, prop-shaft, gearbox lower cover plate and other small items were all re-connected and the gearbox to engine all tightened up.
One minor glitch that could have spelled a disaster, was that the gearbox had some how gone into gear whilst out of the car. So when when the prop was re-connected the car couldn’t be rolled back into the garage. The gear lever mechanism had to be refitted with some guess work, and with a bit of luck slotted back into place and I was able to take the car out of gear. The Corsair seemed a lot heavier pushing back into the garage too!
Well, it was a long wait for my motivation to return and some good weather (last week was good too but lacked the desire to do anything), but it did and I have the re-faced flywheel and a new clutch plate with existing pressure plate now installed. I also eventually got the gearbox loosely in after a 2.5 hour tussle!
All bolts need to be tightened properly but the prop-shaft, gearbox bell housing front plate and exhaust system still need to be put back together. At least the worst part is done and the other bits can be done more easily soon… (famous last words).
