The engine is now in its proper place in the engine bay. When I started her she was sitting beside the bus. Over the weekend I pulled the bus forward with the motor home and winched the engine behind her. Then jacked her up and supported it with stacks of blocking. I then let the bus roll back over it and winched it into the bus. There was some brute force involved but she's in there now and I need a day of recovery...... ;) Then ill get busy buttoning things up. May have her ready to fire off again by the end of the month.


Thanks
