    Tap 'o de marnin' to Y'all!

    What would we do with our time if we didn't have puzzles to solve set by previous owners of our vehicles?

    My personal choice would be Freecell on the computer. Sad ;(

    Imagine, if you will, a car swapping hands like a burning coal for no other reason than somene (Previous previous previous Owner) had forgotten to replace an obscure earth bolt?

    Yeah, starts OK with a fully charged battery, Yeah, runs well on long trips apart from a few instrument glitches. Nah, doesn't like being wound over on the starter for too long so make sure the engine is warm when guys come to view it.

    SOoooooooooo simple when you find the fault and SOooooooooooo obvious it becomes embarrassing to tell.

    Needless to say it was worth the hypothermia (exacerbated by finding that my working trainers leaked icy water onto my feet) to nail it!

    Have a good one Guys.

    (As the song advises.)

    I’m thinking of the added value of the shiny new bits others have fitted to the car in their efforts to resolve the problem -

    - compared with the cost of a setscew and a copper washer

    I’m quite a happy bunny at the mo’, despite the double pneumonia.
