Davrian - Patient Breathes Again

Well, apologies for the delay - I seem to have created an entry and then not published it.  Oh well you'll get two updates for the price of one!

The picture shows the new engine mated to the gearbox but without all the ancilliary services reconnected.

Thanks to Nigel Heighton for giving up his time to help reconnect all the fluid lines before Brian returned to complete the electrickery.

After initial success we hit a snag with the starter motor - recified by the addition / replacement of a small collar to prevent overthrow - and later managed to get the engine started and running.  To my uneducated ears it's running at least as smoothly as the original. 

Have a look/listen for yourself in this short video
