Another brilliant write up with good pictures thanks
Thanks! (y)I'm still blaming you for the splines comment that kicked all this off! :ROFLMAO: ..speaking of which, I still have to sort out the brake pedal splines. I may well go to the vapour blasters, where I will be starting off the conversation with 'now don't laugh' :rolleyes::D

Glad I could help lol after looking at the new one(output shaft) you did the right thing.
Yep, definitely the right thing. The whole process wasn't too bad and I'll be back on track in no time. I still think the paint work will be the main factor delaying getting the old girl back on the road, so I have time, and no real rush!

well, can't put it off, the engine has to go back.

Made some room and put the engine on vlocks, having tried without. the engine sat too low and I was not confident I could easily lift it up to sit properly in the frame.

Generator and cam covers off helped.

Time to organise bolts/plating. One of those triple clamp bolts looks wrong!

The plate and possibly the spacers should be black, so I'll paint those.

Having put the front mounts on the wrong way around, swapping them around soon has the engine sitting in the frame in the right place. There is an oil cooler mount to go onto that left mount as well, but with the rear mount bolt temporarily in place, I can be sure the engine is sitting about right!

After a short pause, things are moving again.

Once the engine mounts were bolted into place, I had to get the fram upright. Here's where an engine crane comes in handy again

It's great to have plated and painted parts to go back together..the silver plates were ceracoated.

the powdercoating makes these fitting a very tight fit. Chipped the finish in two places here, so touched in, but it might be worth masking these areas if anyone is contemplating having their frame powdercoated.
