Single Status Update
Hello All - Update on progress.
I have found a flywheel from a 2.5 Mondeo (non ST) and it fits a treat. I can now align clutch operating arm by extending the pivot and I have a pilot/spigot bearing adaptor being made in a local machine shop. I am fitting the Jaguar starter ring to the ford flywheel to enable me to keep the original starter and not adjust the gearbox adaptor plate. All is looking good now.
Whilst this has been going on I have finally finished the fuel tank modifications to take an internal Walboro pump. I have fitted extra baffles to create an internal anti-surge zone for the pump to sit in and closed up the original leaky large drain/access plate, replacing it with a simple drain plug. All of the access holes have been closed up aircraft fuel tank closing style (lots of work, but worth it in the long run). All this is much cheaper, and I believe more in keeping with what I want, than the external surge tank/pumps/piping that was the alternative. Fuel tank/pump installation pic attached.
More news as and when it happens.
