Yes! Thanks again for your help collecting the engine, and also for the lots of whatsapp support when I was ready to give up during the numerous problems along the way!

Next job, wheel alignment and fuel pressure test and adjustment, both to be done before Hamburg.

Great stuff Dan!!! Reckon you've got this engine in and out business down to a fine art now? How long do you reckon it'll take to swap back out to the 2.8 when it's ready? Do it all in a day?!

I'd allow a weekend for it as the wiring loom needs to be swapped over, exhaust system, fluids, bleeding etc. But should be straightforward in theory. It took a long time this time becuase of having to faff with the Renault lump intially to get it compatible with the D as well as a throrough clean up, clean up all my volvo fueling and ignition bits and putting all that together, plus trying to remember how the wiring is routed, setting up throttle linkage, diagnosing problems, playing with the mixture and throttle settings to get it to start, then fine tuning it all etc. All that faff is done now so can be lifted off this engine straight onto my new rebuilt one and quick tweak of CO.
