    forget the weekend, lets get it done

    1. just couldn't wait till the weekend so in went the fuel tank, still drying but why not fitted, need more suitable bolts but its in

    2. love the ground clearance on the old series, fuel tank nice an high even above the chassis

    3. another view, just need to secure with better bolts/nuts, bunnings here i come...

    4. these damn clips, lucky i had some similar ones left over from another job, these are to secure the centre cover above the gearstick - screws to bulkhead

    5. re did the floor on both pass and driver side as i needed to fit the centre piece first, now done

    6. my red knob is on (no pun intended), really completes the interior look with the red and yellow knobs, pushing ahead.

    radiator no leaks so that all good, fuel tank will fill up next week hopefully it wont leak either. still waiting on more parts from UK.

    small fuel tank update

    1. got another delivery from the UK, bulkhead chassis number plate, brand new just need to go and get the vin number stamped

    2. made a little bracket to hold down the gearbox oil filler, one question - if i fill the g'box with oil how do i tell if its full of oil, does it come with a small dipstick or another nut that you undo to see when full like the diffs

    3. fuel added to tank no leaks, plumbed up with fuel filter as well, will need to purchase more fuel and fill to the top

    4. i think i need a washer under this tank lid, its very loose fitted - now to find one...

    There should be a dip stick in the top of the gear box just in front of the seat box, In this photo it is item 10 Image (2).jpg & in this photo top right is item B Image (4).jpg If the dip stick is missing there should be a hole for it. The gearbox holds 1.5 lit's & Transfer case holds 2.5 lit's
    There should be a large gasket there , cut one out of thick gasket material or suitable thickness rubber sheet , but you will need something that will not be affected by the fuel . Or you may still be able to buy them from suppliers.

    4. i think i need a washer under this tank lid, its very loose fitted - now to find one.... you'll have trouble bubuying one, you'll probaprobably have to cut one from about 3mm rubber (or similar material) that is compatible with fuel
    You seem to be making good progress now.

    Yes. Early gearboxes did not have a level plug in the side - not sure when they started to put them in, but Series 2 still had the dipstick. It was dropped fairly early in Series 2a production.

    It seems the memory has failed me, then again, it's been a long time since my Series I & II days!
    Disregard my (incorrect ) advise re Series I gearbox level plug.
