It's been a while now but to recap on PMW.
The engne now has a new head gasket and the cylinder head had a light skim. The new readiator is fitted along with the electric fan and it all appears to be fine.
The car isn't going anywhere though as it has no diff in it. On the 10CR it was very noisy but we put up with it. After though as part of the work for next time it has been rebuilt courtesy of one of our crew who knows a retired expert on diffs and gearboxes.
Here it is with new bearings etc but it's currently in Surrey! I need the Club Triumph Pony Express service to cometo the rescue and get it back to me in Lancashire so that the next bit of preparations for 2017 10CR can take place.
