Nah. Was supposed to be getting some work done this week to get it most of the way. A bit of an 'oops' by another driver has meant we're down to one family car so all work on the Lotus has been cancelled/postponed for quite a while. The car was underinsured and the other guy's insurance is in question. The only bit of good news is that the carport will soon be a garage.....

I'll do you a good deal on the Twincam when I drop the rotary in... :lol:

Just out of curiosity - in the first pic the #1 inlet manifold looks intact, in the lower pic it appears to have broken off the top part - what happened?

Ah, what a bugger!!!

Got mine back and it's all looking nice and shiny. Also got the gaskets etc, so just need some time to put it back together!

Sweet thanks. I have an L block/bottom end which is handy. I could do with those tappet buckets though! Also looking for the waterpump front plate etc bits.
