Looks really nice. It loos like you're using the International V800 from the kit. This article might help you with your "plumbing problem":

Wow thanks Jim you just made my day well I guess I do have some luck lol

 

Only one little problem that I see is that about 3 lines down it tells you not to put the engine together for drilling :blink: ! Oh well I will see

what I can do ! Time to get the drill out ! ;)

If I weren't deployed, I could get you all the pics you want! My Dad works for a concrete plant. He has no internet, nor a computer, or I'd ask him to send me some pics.

the engine has been painted white I know its not the correct blue but white shows the weathering off better I think B) Its a recon

Thanks everyone

 

James the engine has come out better than I thought .I made use of the great reference that I got on here for the wires .The paint is just white acrilic and then bathed in some whitespirits and matt enamel earth then put in a rag and mop up the exess . This leaves a mottled effect on engine then the manifolds where painted with mig powders and a bit of earth for rust.

 

Thanks for looking more soon

 

Dave
