Good to see a start made on the 1694 Phil
David,I dont think there is much difference between the 1690T and 1694, all the 1690Ts were std gearboxes and all the 1694s had hydra-shift. How are you getting on in Australia? missing you back here!

Thanks Nev, i will be back working on it tomorrow inbetween fixing cars. Don't think there are many mechanical differences at all between the 2 Dave. Does your 16t have a Holset turbo on it Nev?

Yes Phil, the 1690T has a Holsett turbo, the 1394s have Switzer turbos

Yer i thought so, i was asked to take it to Holset's in May as they are having a 60th birthday bash and want different vehicles with Holsets fitted but there's no way it will be done for then! :roll:

Cracked piston from the cylinder where head gasket had gone. Reckon this came in bits at the right time. Could have been messy! :roll:
