Well it's done - first startup went beautifully tonight.
Lots of oil pressure, lovely quiet engine, lots of torque in all the 
right places and good indications of a wonderful performance as she 
loosens up.
Lots of little things to be done, including getting the new rear 
mudguards fitted and painted, and the generator is only putting out a 
piddling amount.
But everything else that should be working is doing its job - so with 
luck and efficient panel beating she should be ready for the first local 
Rover car club run at the end of the month.
Lovely crackly exhaust note - just what I wanted, and when the diff 
ratio is eventually lengthened a bit I think she will be an absolute 
pleasure to take in the country.
Thanks so very much to all list members who have chipped in with helpful 
advice since work began in July.
