    It took almost 10 minutes of twisting and gentle pushing for it to engage in the pump.

    Can take that long even for professionals. Now you can see why so many people get it wrong.

    Now fill the trans to the top mark and fire up the engine. Add more fluid until you get a CLEAN line on both sides of the dip stick. I have dipped and wiped over 20 times on some transmissions to get a clean line of the level.

    First trip around the block, dip the trans again.

    Hope this is not eggs and grandma....


    Seen a trans input shaft, seal and converter nose wiped out after a few hundred miles due to no dowels installed. They are there for a reason.

    Had to find some where to put the induction so the top of the motor seemed like a good place.
    Getting there

    Now things are starting to warm up I can get out and do some more. House stuff and moving kids between flats has taken up most of the last 5 months.
    Not touched the car since mid September last year!

    Life does have a way of getting in the way of builds.
