    Removed the temporarally fitted engine and gearbox from the chassis today ( to save room on the floor ) stripped the ancileries of the gearbox ready for sending it away and to paint the engine, then once the gearbox is back i can drop them back in :)

    New chassis, I have to replace a rubbish Galvanised chassis I had fitted by Foleys. It rusted away quicker than a standard one! So if looking for a good job, give Foleys a miss.

    Yippee my money has just come through, so that's another £5k I can now throw at the 2a bearing in mind I owe £1,300 out for the new galv bulkhead I bought the other week and I still need to get the g/box and tranny box refurbished / uprated then the rest is for everything else I need for the 2a so I need to make a new parts list :D

    Got it from Richards chassis although i sometimes wish it was a Marsland chassis as with this Richards chassis when removing and fitting the engine either with the gearbox fitted or not i always have a problem lowering the engine onto its mounts as though something is a couple of mil out, with my last series i rebuilt with a Marsland chassis it started with a 2.25D engine then later replaced with a 2.25P engine then later a Disco 200tdi engine and i never had an issue with either engines going in or coming out.

    But i did replace the chassis on our 200tdi 90 earlier last year with a Richards chassis and had a similar problem with that aswell, think if i ever do another chassis swap it will be a Marsland chassis
