Nick it's good to have you back, and on the mend too, I think the PC is one of the worst bits of news we all dread, I have a blood test every year, mines getting bigger although the docs happy with it at the moment. like you say we need to talk about these things,
Yes sir, working faster.
checked the flywheel, that a mate refaced. 5/100mm run out should do. Try to prepare all the "little" things before engine is bored and crank reground. Next new ring gear on flywheel. Than balancing con rods, ....
Here goes the daft old man again on another trip that seemed a good idea on a Sunday night after a visit to the pub
The idea is sail to Bilbao then up and down various passes in the Pyrenees to Andorra then do the other side of the Pyrenees (French bit) before going up to Le Mans
Now what could go wrong with that plan?
Well the oil leak on Monday with a sailing on Tuesday for a start! Still dinner at 9 pm then packing and a quick polish bed at 12 up at 3 am for 8.30 sailing
Blogged our way onto lorry deck to keep Spitty dry and salt free and off boat first (was looking good gods on our side?)
Then got stuck in massive traffic jam 3 miles down the road! Pulled off to all cool down and the made our way to san Sebastian
Parked Spitty 4 floors down in a private car park then bought a nice bottle carva for 1.75 euros plus nibbles
Since been out for a meal and more carva so world seems better now!
So game on again
I do not have any jb weld is the same as araldite? And as for brake cleaner I an old school and clean with celly thinners!
Just been stuck in major traffic jam and Spittys 2 nd fan came on and oil got to 95 c
Still a bar calls now Spitty parked 4 floors underground!
