Upgrade Shakedown

Sunshine in mid March encouraged me to get the car back on the road so a final push to complete all the post upgrade rebuild.  12 March was a quick run out on my own - cold tyres and forgetting just how quick the car is led to an entertain drive out and lots of very big grins.  On Sunday Tricia and I did 70+ miles down to the south coast road then back to Yeovil via Sherborne.  Noticed that the battery voltage was low - not sure whether this is the change in lower limit that I programmed the digidash or something more terminal - checked all the battery connections when we got home and they appeared okay.  Tuesday evening was sunny again and I managed to get Tricia out again, battery light still flashing and thought it might be the battery feedback to the alternator as the overall voltage was sometimes lower than 12 volts - schoolboy error the main alternator change cable was fitted but not bolted on......fixed; also a couple of minor weeps from coolant hoses....tightened up.
