We pressed the button and nothing happened. I'd connected the starter input on the loom to ground rather than 12v :laugh:

Then we wrested for a few hours ******g about chasing what I thought was no oil pressure. Andy Bates had told me I'd see 3-4 psi from turning it over with the plugs out, but nada. Hoses off, connectors off, senders off, oil everywhere. Still no pressure from turning over on the starter.

So Maurici grew a pair of balls and decided there must be pressure from the tests we'd done, and we should fire it up. Fired immediately first time :d

Warms up exactly as expected, perfect oil pressure just took a few seconds to build / register, thermostat, water pump and fan work exactly as intended, no leaks now I actually tightened one of the fuel line hose clips properly, oops. So chuffed! :d Plenty more work to do but I can book the dyno now.

And, quite appropriately, proper Continental style man hugs, rather than the American version. :yes:

You know what they say, any man who drinks Old Mout and Rekorderlig, not scared of a man hug :oops:

Too excited to sleep so back on it shortly! :rolleyes:
