Smart car axle tube with Astra Watts linkage onto Omega rear hubs . Bit tight , intake will have to sit over top of engine so need some rams horn pipes making .

Respect to you for doing all that (that some claim us ladies cannot do!!!!! ::) ::) ::) :P :P)

My first car was an 1960 Austin A40, Farina bodied, so I can just imagine what I could have done with that having the Omega parts, and 3.2 engine, available to me today!! ;D ;D ;D ;D

Knowing what condition my A40's chassis was then ( rotted and separated from the body!!) will you have to strengthen it for the Omega engine in addition to the welding I can see you have done all ready? ??? ???

I didn't assemble it.


Some of those spring clamps have never been off the engine since I bought it.




Every heater hose is attached with Jubilees....

This is a 1951 Devon so has a separate chassis, the A40 Farina was a rebodied A35 of unitary construction . Old enough to have worked on these when apprentice.

The heater, valve and their plumbing are stock MGB.  One of the engine connections is stock X30. The other is on the new water rail, sized to fit the old hose and placed where we needed it to be. That makes one connection that is 'corrupted' by the Jubilee clamp; the others are correct ;D

Think I can just get away without moding water rail , just enough room to get a 90 bend  on to clear inner wing. Problem I have is not enough room to fit intake between rad and engine. Only solution I can think is some "rams horn" pipes with intake sat over top of engine .

Lose the multirams, no need for ducting between the rad and engine then. You could also consider a 2.5/early 3.0.plenum which is shorter
