Whilst waiting for some machine parts to come back, thought I'd a least make it a little nicer to look at when its finally rebuilt.
 
BEFORE:

 
AFTER a few coats of etching primmer & heat proof paint.

Got a few parts back, just waiting to clear some room as to start this smallport rebuild.
Got all parts now, so a few weeks this one should be up and running :-)
 
Ah... maybe a little longer, my mate has to completely rewire so it takes the smallport engine.


 
Found out that Im a flywheel & pressure plate short on this build....will need to source one & have it machined.
 
More to come.

Got a little more done today... starting to look like an engine again.
 






 
Just waiting on a flywheel which got held up thru E-go, and a manifold flange (thanks Knightrous), Oh and a sandwich plate, which sits behind the flywheel - let me know if anyone has one, looks though it was missing, or I've miss placed it somewhere :-(

 
Plans if all goes well, should be up & running by end of Nov ;-)

Ok, quick update:
 
Got a 'sandwich plate' in the end, installed machined flywheel, new exedy clutch plate & throw out bearing.

 
I had to source a spacer exhaust flange otherwise the aftermarket extractors were failing on the starter motor. The extra flange gave it an 8mm clearance gap ;-)

 
Engine complete with gearbox, just need to have the body harness loom slightly altered to suit the 4age smallport engine & its ready for installation.

Little more progress yesterday,
 
Out with the old radiator hoses, in with the new!


 

 
A quick mock up to pressure test the radiator before its install. 

 

 
Just to finish up hooking up hoses, adding & bleeding fluids, finishing wiring (not me thankfully) & give it a crank over :-)

The Wiring nightmare begins.. This one is a little more complicated as I want everything to function correctly as it will be a road registered car, unlike my track aw11's with smallports you can remove a lot of junk / wiring as its not required.

Small update: mechanically all finished, just gotta get the air re-gassed, take down to local exhaust shop for some slight pipe fabrication & it should be already to start the run in process!
Thanks to my good friend 'Rob' (not a forum member) who did all the wiring conversion for me and assist throughout the whole process 😉.
Once it comes back from the exhaust shop, a full interior / exterior detail & it should be sweet!
