I will try to take some pictures tomorrow so you can see what's what. It would be easy to fabricate them if you need to, or ideally get someone to chop them out of a scrap diesel van for you.
Awesome, ill get on this right away, thanks again!

Good! Engine is in, made the mistake of dropping the engine in first then bolting up the gearbox, but its all in now! Not running yet but that's next weekends task!
