Well time for that unlucky for some part as I left of we had the engine cleaned up and new parts replace I have been looking for the picture of the engine all painted and new parts on it for some unknown reason I have lost them where I don't know where they have gone?
So the picture you will see is the one going into the Reliant now so as you can see the engine has to go under the Reliant no other way it's a to say the least as I have to raise it further into the air ( there must be another way I here you say ) nope that's it underneath sadley
Nope so it's moved into place ready to lift up yes you heard right I had to lift it up but I used jack's to lift this lump up so after a few and a very strong words it was up and in the chassis mounts at the front then had to raise the rear then bolt that up.
Then it was bolt all the rest of the new parts onto the engine rebuild after much rebuilding later it was time to test and run the engine took a few turns but fired up and ran for a few min's let kool down and tighten up all nut's and bolt's etc.
So now I have rolling running electrifying running Reliant after 3 years of rebuilding it but not finished there yet - more to come in part 14
