|The mechanical part of the M.F.I is just below and behind the distributor. Can barely see it here.|
|The fuel injector side of the motor.|
Lots of attention to detail on this one and out of a limited field, my favorite. Like I said, the field was very small due to the weather. I got there early, around 9:30 to try to avoid the rain and by 11:30, I had seen everything at least three times and had my lunch at the wood-fired pizza truck that was there (The Rolling Tomato; outstanding place that we eat out regularly at their brick-and-mortar place).
|Perfect British weather!|
|"Lord Vader, your car is ready." A step up as this is an Aston Martin, obviously.|
|Sometimes, when the filter won't come out...leverage is your friend.|
I also broke away the rest of the exhaust/intake manifold bolts and tried to remove the exhaust manifold, but lack of a good cutting wheel prevented me.
|Exhaust manifold removed...FMEs installed (foreign material exclusion, as we called them in the Navy).|
|Original? I have no idea...but it will be replaced.|
So, not too bad, but not enough. Again, the clock is ticking and I only have 12 months to get this car on the road. That 12 months will entail and engine inspection/rebuild, head rebuild/conversion to unleaded, frame strip/repair/rebuild/refurbishment, suspension rebuild, body repair and putting it all back together. Lots of work...so little time.
