No new pics yet

But I am now more than happy with my bargin.
Having paid £330 for her when the guy was expecting at least a grand that was a result
Getting her home and finding the engine does work was even sweeter
But know after jacking her up today I found almost new tyres on each corner.
Even better result

Now I can see what he wanted a £1000 for her, o'well his loss my gain  LMAO

Right now I am off work for 2 weeks it time to get cracking with the ultima, with only 8 days till I go to Scotland for some R & R and  12 days till the BB it time to step up a gear.

Heres some more pics of what I have done so far.

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                           [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
Now I have 3 peddles.                    Connecting the clutch master cylinder hose.

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                           [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
Hose connected as well as the        Gear lever removed.
Clutch feed pipe.

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                           [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
Up in the air ready for action.          Engine Out (it's now dark !!)

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                           [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
Engine now in the Ultima                 Manual Gear lever in place awaiting connection.


The hardest part is now done, removing both the engines and replacing the rebuilt one from the old one in the Ultima.
The peddle were not to bad to do. They are mounted on a long bar through the peddle box with return springs. The bar is shorter on the auto as there is no clutch peddle.

All I had to do was remove the brake peddle from the auto and push out the short bar and then remove the clutch peddle complete with the clutch master cylinder and brake peddle from the manual push out the long bar and refit it in to the ultima reattach the peddles and bingo 2 hours later the ultima has 3 peddles.

All I have to do now is sort out the electric which should be easy with the excellent advice Daz has given me.

Stick  it all back together again then sort out the interior.

Will it make the BB.... yes I hope so if I have no major problems

By the way Daz I am getting like you, I am getting the knack of undoing the suspension mount top nuts. The ones on the Ultima were a doddle and posed no problems they were both off in 15 mins.
