Been a long time but I'm back, Have moved and new job. Car has finally made it back into my garage and can no work on it during evenings and weekends!
I thought I had issues with the engine but turned out the timing belt was just too tight! Phew! So fixed that last weekend and also drained down the system and fixed a few leaks I had found.
Next big job is to sort out the rear lights so will probably have a few questions over the following week
Anyhow great to see you all again!
