I thought I may as well knock up a couple of brackets and get it in.
The only things other than tools I have use that were not in the kit are screws to replace the tek screws that came with the kit a pair of brackets, 4 off 6mm bolts, 1 off 6mm penny washer [body washer] used on the pump mounting and a nut to use as a spacer on the inlet pipe. I still need to drill a hole through the wall for the exhaust.
The tank has to have a 8mm hole drilled in it for the outlet fitting. It can be made to be either left or right hand fill.

It is a very simple thing to put together and no one should have any problems with one. It is impossible to get the electrical wiring wrong as all the plugs and sockets are paired.

Filled the tank with diesel and bled it through to the pump, connected to a battery as a power supply. Pressed on and away it went. It went though its purge sequence and ignited first time. I have run it for a couple of hours tuning it up and down and it responds fine. Turned it off and it goes through its shutdown cooling sequence and then turns off.

As far as quality is concerned without doubt the worst part is the controller whilst perfectly functional just not as nicely made as the rest.
Early days yet but I am more than happy with it.
this is quite exciting - how's the heat and how's the noise ?
of all the bodily functions that could be contagious
thank god it's only the yawn
I will stick my meter on it to see what its consuming electrically as well.
As said you were right about the pump.
