Patience is a virtue so they say.
I picked up a new water pump from S&S yesterday. In the meantime I have ordered a slide hammer which is needed to complete the job.
Went to the RBRR driver's meeting last night and got home this evening.
No slide hammer- so all I could do was "wire up" the oil pressure gauge but then I noticed I was missing a small pipe from the water pump cover. This was rectified by removing one from the old TR7 engine but that has a dodgy seal - ho hum!
8 days to go.
