Hottest day of the year yesterday so after 8 hours at work I decided to go sweat it out in the garage lol. Engine is in :) checked clearance with of the Spoon manifold too and all is good thank god as I spent a lot of time cutting and welding the subframe for clearance.

Finally got a few hours back on this, bit the bullet and redid the fuel filter/lines properly.

Removed distributor and fitted a Valeo coil pack, I don't need half the sensors in the dizzy and this is a neater and simpler solution, plus it's a bit more modern and I can get coil packs cheap lol.
