    It took a little head scratching, but it finally occurred to me that, in order to get the "push-pull" of the heater cable to work properly, all I had to do was install the Heater Control Valve (HCV) upside down (and remember to reverse the hoses when I get to that part of the plumbing). I also have the ARB and the radiator installed).

    The Engine is IN !

    I was little confused about a connector coming off the engine that didn't seem fit the connector it lined up with. Josh at Rocky Mountain Caterham figured it out for me. The receptor I had found was a "vestigial connection" left over from when they used K engines, so it can be taped off and ignored. The green connector coming off the engine goes to the MAP sensor, which Caterham had failed to attach to the chassis or include in the parts. It's on its way from Jolly Olde, so you can all look forward to questions about exactly how I attach that to the chassis and where the hose enters the intake manifold in a couple weeks.

    The Sigma really does neatly package in a Caterham.

    I laughed at your heater deliberations - brings back memories of not being able to reinstall mine years ago. Gave up, was enjoying a beer when the lightbulb went off on how to install it.
