Do those pistons have the same dimensions as the wossners, and is the battery located in the engine bay?

Hi Paul , no theses are slightly bigger as were meant for a ford v8 so 4.125” diameter .
Battery in boot , the cable is there to remind me to put it in before engine goes back in !

Ahh right. I sometimes take pics when I do work now. Doesn't stop me forgetting where I've put stuff down though :? .

Got all the bits and pieces together , spigot bearing , crank seal and clutch plate , so going to put engine in on monday all being well .
In the meantime I have had a brace made up that will take the mounts for the intercooler as well as having the new intercooler modified to reverse the flow which will free up a lot more room in the engine bay .
Also my ali rad from china turned up which doesn't look to bad . Went with this after reading other peoples experiences which seemed positive . This is one of the reasons for swapping the engine over in the first place as the old rad had developed a severe leak from the attachment of the end tanks . Mocking this up allowed me to judge where to place the remote electric water pump .
So to start necking the ibuprofen in preparation for the concrete floor on monday , mind you that's how most my days start getting older .

Thanks Stuart .
Managed to get the engine in today with its Kep stage 1 pressure plate attached . Got another day refitting bits and bobs and working out pipework . Unfortunately I will have to wait for my exhaust from AAS to be made and delivered before I can go much further .
