    It ran great for about 5 minutes....... Then came the smoke! Bugger. Oil coming from the header flange. I pulled the right hand head, hoping I might have a stuck ring. And there is a score right up the bore on number 8 cylinder. Shame cos after 50 ish years there's bugger all wear!!!

    Still smokes. I have modded it to take stem seals on the inlets. I am going to see what happens after it gets a good run. I don't like to run it for long as I'm in the middle of a housing estate.
    I'm 50 next year and want to drive it then. I have some more updates tonight and I'm having a week of next week to get on with it.

    The pedal assembly mounts to captive nuts welded to the new bulkhead and to the dash cross bar (new). The servo is a landie discovery unit (I like landies as I will always get bits) the cross bar, pedal and bell crank are all Saab 95. The bracket is 4mm Dural ( easy to cut and weld). A few paper templates and some kart steering joints and tube and your done.
    The assembly

    The bellcrank

    The cross shaft this will be hidden behind an old heater

    The plug welds and tacks are because my spot welder struggles with this thickness at this extension.
