I've spent most of the time between last episode and this working on redoing the radiator modifications. So in the absence of anything else, here's a slightly shorter video with an update of where I've got to.

In these two episodes, I try (and fail) to get the car outside, but then succeed!

This time round, I investigate what is going on with the clutch, after finding last time that it wasn't quite working right. Will I need to remove the engine *again* to sort it out?

In this episode, after the success of getting an MOT test and the car being road legal again, and the sadness of a burnt out coilpack connector and suspected failing engine, I fix the coilpack connector, and begin troubleshooting where that horrible knocking clunky noise is coming from.

In episode 33, I replace the banana-shaped driveshafts, and further investigate the horrible knocking noise coming from the engine.



I've done something a little different this time - an unedited "first person" segment - please let me know if you like it, and would like to see this kind of thing again!

There's finally a break in the weather long enough for me to get the car out for a test drive in the Anglia! But.... it's never that simple, is it?

This time round, I do some fixes & tweaks based on last episode's test drive & subsequent discoveries about my four cylinder V6 engine...

I've got lots of stuff going on around the house and garden, so not quite as much time to work on the Anglia - however, I did get the exhausts fitted back up, fiddled off-camera a little with the Oxygen sensor display thingy I've been building, and managed to get out for a bit of a test drive & start the road tuning.

In this episode, I try to make the interior a little nicer, and quieter, with the addition of carpet and some underlay for sound insulation.
