Wow quite a lot of work then!!


Hi Bob, yeah, & I'm getting(got) too old for it. Also heard noise from the water pump so have just fitted a new one. Some 'STAR' mechanic been on this car at times - two of the 1/4 UNC bolts holding the two halfs of the pump together had been sheared - easily fixed by said star mechanic - just fill the holes with sealer!!! Now drilled out & re-tapped. He(or she) had also found a seized inner piston in the near side caliper when fitting new(wrong) pads.That's OK,easy job,just put a worn pad in the inner & new in the outer.
Job sorted. All the best,JD.

Humber has now gone to Liverpool(sorry Bob2) as I got the chance of something more to my liking(& a lot rarer). I will need to change my avtar & post some pix. Shush Peter(Scott), keep it quiet a little longer. Good to see you again at Bridge of Allan,cheers,JD.

Corsair Estate is also now sold due to other things going on in my life.
It will be going to NewZealand with a wee detour to Chelmsford first.
New owner splits his time between UK & NZ. Cheers,JD.
