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!
