Sunday Update
Taken it for a short test and it goes very well. revs up nice and sounds smooth. I've not been 'on cam' yet but I'm pleased, just got to sort my oil light out. Going to run an alternative wire to it to so if i've damaged the wiring loom or removed the wire when converting my MGF VVC engine loom to metro fitment by mistake. Bit of trail and error on my part maybe.
Was going to pressure wash the engine but my pressure washer started smoking as soon as I turned it on....

After reusing my flywheel from my 1.8 solid cam engine which was from a Rover 416 it didn't work on the VVC, I've now fitted my Rover 216 bubble flywheel.
Anyway it now starts and after a few seconds the tapping has stopped from the hydrolic lifters.
I've driven it about 2 car lengths forward and back OK.
One problem, which I'm hoping is my heavy handedness is the oil pressure light is on continously. The switch may have taken a bashing against the subframe. So i'm hopeing...
