We put in her dash and added some interior, I didn't have an Austin Steering so we installed a La Farerra steering wheel.

I was looking for a new washer hose online, and was lucky enough to find this, a complete nos, hose, bottle and mounting bracket.

I cleaned up the electric fuel pump that came with the car, it was kinda period correct so I decided to use it. Primed the pump over and over again and Nada, couldn't get her to work, pulled it apart and found out the diagram was a mess, I couldn't find a replacement diagram fast, so went with what I know and trust FACET! Ive used them in race cars street cars etc. cheap and really reliable. Looked up the PSI for the Austin, found the correct Facet pump 40104, picked it up, we got fuel flow.

I changed the fuel filter twice, the tank and lines had a lot of crud, third filter was running clean, dropped in some leaded race fuel, primed the carbs, yanked the spark plugs sprayed the cylinders, plugs back in let her sit for a few minutes a few shots of this stuff in the carbs... she's alive!
