Ha Ha! Eliot :)

I've just bought what I have been told is the ultimate SBC 1 piece sump gasket ?

I spoke to Real Steel today and my block is in the container but they havent got to it yet to book it into the stores :)

Question?
Why do you have WALL E sat on top of your engine?

That might fit for n the GT40

Need to remove the rear window and have "Wall-E" sticking out the top.

I can hear the purists turning in their graves!

Even with best will in the world, there's no way that engine will fit in the Countax!

Perry, that's a fine looking engine :)

Things have moved on a little now.
I had the engine booked in for a dyno tune but I had to cancel that as I had no oil to the rockers on cylinder 8. That has now been resolved thank goodness.

So next week I'll call Peter Knight to see when I can get the engine over to him for bedding in and then a final tune up.

I think my chances of hitting Retro show this year with the MGB are now trashed. But I'll just keep at it and hopefully have the car on track in September for testing :)

Perry, Hope all is well with you. Just a bump to see if anything was new. BritishV8 site is curious also.

Anybody heard from Perry? Hasn't posted here or on BritishV8 in a long time. Hope he is well.
