The engine has never been run up in the chassis with gearbox and transmission. So it was time to give it a go. Here is the result of the first attempt:

Here is a summary of the results:

* The casting which mounts the generator was leaking engine oil.
* The fuel pump was not working, had to use an electrical pump in series with the mechanical SU pump.
* The generator was not charging.
* Fuel leaks in the carburettors
* The choke action is too stiff and unpredictable will not return to off without help.

Update 01/07/16

All the problems are now resolved except the choke action.

Here is an Index page for the build
