Must be a first. The head is back on and I managed to not break anything. Not even any skin on my knuckles. Where's the beer?

Running well Rick, I just wish this rain would stop so I can get out there for a run.

The old girl failed the MOT on track rod end(s). I started looking for replacements and was looking at silly money. I tried a midget track rod end and it fitted in the tapper so I will just have 2 rods made up with that thread and bingo. So while I was looking for a good price I came across John Davis of Vintage and collectors car spares and he quoted 70 a pair for the Morris Shocked I was expecting that for each one. John also does king pins and some engine parts. Well worth a ring; 01724 784230
At that price I will replace all 4.
