Thanks for all that Blair – now I understand the gear issue, of course I have a 502 engine in a 501 frame and I must have been reading the 501 gear change instructions in the manual! That was my main concern – other things I should be able to deal with without taking the engine out.

I have one new 12volt battery under the seat – not sure of the amp hour – I’ll have a look tonight. What I may try is “jumping” it with a 12volt car battery and see if that will turn it over.

I’ll check the carb and timing at the weekend.

Could be worse. When I “finished” my MG TD, I had to remove the engine twice again to fix problems.
