Hear, hear! And as someone who appreciates number plates, that one is an absolute cracker! OSM 205M; so in other words it looks like 'Osm 2 Osm' or 'Awesome to Awesome', almost like 'going from strength to strength'. Best of luck with the engine fitting, and enjoy that stunning car! 8)

PS - Or, it could be someone's comment on your car... It's 'awesome... TOO awesome'! :)

Thanks for that diy, it looks like a good one, i bought it as a stalled project. Hopefully after I've got the engine sorted it won't need too much more to get it up and running. Time will tell!

Diy, Tom, thanks for your kind comments , coincidentally my wife spotted the osm 2 osm possibility. I only saw the familiar SM being from my, or should i say our part of the world.

I'm just plucking up the courage to start putting things together, and I've run into a bit of a mystery. In both the workshop manual and GWs parts catalogue the front crank oil seal (part 39 in the picture) is shown behind the crank gear. However the only place I can see that a front oil seal would fit is in the front cover i.e. in front of the gear. Are the pictures misleading or am I getting in a muddle?

I think it's illustrators licence....look at the page in the parts list where the front cover is shown and the front cover oil seal is positioned as you suggest
