 24 August 2006: The engine is in!
Last night we finally managed to get the 1600 engine into the pickup! It runs, but there are still a lot of little jobs that need sorting. So I won't be taking it to the show in Spa this weekend.

 14 August 2006: The 1600cc engine saga
The new (1600cc) engine has been ready for a few months, but somehow we hadn't been able to get around to fitting it in the pickup. The weather foarecast for last weekend was pretty bad, so we decided not to go to Bitburg. Plan B: fit the engine!
The gearbox on the pickup is for a 109 teeth flywheel. The new engine had a 130 teeth flywheel. we couldn't swap it over, as the bit that sits over the crank is shaped differently. the boys at BBT had a propper unit in stock, so we cruised down to get it (and a new clutch). After an afternoon of bolting bits together it turns out that the new flywheel wasn't to the same spec as was written on the box!! :-(
They are now gona machine a 109 unit down so it will fit over the new model crank. should be finished in a few days
