Mart, you didn't show it, but I assume you put the rope seal in the front cover?

Mart was that a Pilot sump? If so would you'd be running a Lucas starter?

By the way love the videos.... your new strap line "hello!" I look forward to them like the updates to the "Project Binky" series on youtube

Thanks guys.

Graeme, the sump pan was ex military stock so probably English and maybe pre-dating Pilot. It should use a lucas starter but I had (some time ago) opened the hole out to suit a USA spec starter. the The French flywheel has the correct tooth count to match the USA spec starter. Something to watch for is that the teeth are cut differently on some French motors. the ones on this flywheel were cut the right way.

Thanks Gramps it means a lot to me that you are enjoying seeing it come together.

Mart.
