Thanks mojobaby, i tried to do something different :laughing:.

Paul, not using the wooden rear bumper as i think it would outshine the rest of the van :laughing:, Hmm well engine runs but will not tick over unless you have it around 800 revs and yes i've tried everything i can think including jets, gaskets, seals, pipes well you name i've done :dontknow:
so i put on a Zenith 28 and :clapping: runs a treat, WHY ?

I want to get on with rodeo but all these customers keep giving me cars to fix instead

drove very well but kept to a reasonable speed around 60mph as not done as many miles as i wanted to as there not a lot of time, did aound 43mpg which i did'nt think was to bad as we were well loaded, arrived with no problems and a reasonable calm crossing for a change, it's only a couple of miles to the camp site and with very little wind tent was easier this year to put up :laughing:.
Nice sunny day the following day so out and about to make the most of it supposed to be rain the next day :(. IMG_1045.JPG IMG_1044.JPG IMG_1035.JPG

Been back now a couple of days, we covered just over 2000 miles without any problems, last day went to Birsey north of the mainland and across the causeway, you had a two hour window to cross and get back before the tide covers everything and there's now where to stay on the other side :o. Now back to work and repairing my eldest son's R4 for the mot :)

Hello

do you mean C823TRK is a 1.3 not a 1.1?
might make a difference to the rebuild im about to pay for
