Between rain showers few more bits done.
Radiator in place, alternator needs bracket made, new plugs and leads.
Has raised certain issues to be solved over next week or so.

Thank you. Still some way to go.
Replacement radiator prevents bonnet from closing properly so that will need rectification.

Some wiring undertaken to fusebox / relay board. In garage due to wet weather.
LED DRL controller arrived and positioned as at the moment it is still dry!!

Radiator dropped so that bonnet closes as it should.

As expected clash when SU carb fitted. Wilwood valve easy movement. but seems the Rockwatt modified manifold does not move the carb away from the servo / master cylinder enough.

Is the carb making contact with the servo?

Where did you get your throttle linkage plates? I've just sent my manifold off to Richard aswell. Hopefully I'll clear my servo.

Does the carb clear with the vacuum takeoff spacer removed? You need to remove that spacer anyway as the vacuum takeoff is on the wrong side of the butterfly with that fitted.
As per Nigel heads write up, linked in the SU carb thread the dizzy vacuum takeoff needs to be on the air filter side of the butterfly valve.
