i think u have a point there john! Engine mounting on RHS is possibly at fault
looks to me like there might be very little clearance between the inner wing and the airbox?
I had the same problem after my rebuild and replaced the engine mounting with a beefed up one which solved the problem ... and made it sooo much easier to access the weber bolts etc :wink:

Great story and your restoration is looking good! Keep the faith, your close to being back on the road. I know the feeling of driving a car you have personally restored, it is extremely satisfying and will add a new dimension to every drive.
