I will always have the faith, dad won't let me have anything else :laughing2

But yeah, its incredibly frustrating when you have to do the same difficult fix 4 times and it still not fix the problem. :headbanging

Don'tworry, not forgotten about this one, but finding m-series timing belt covers is HARD!

Check your stockpiles and let me know if you have any.

Does that mean your back garden doesn't have anything in it?

Well, now we have our new unit ready to work its time to start with this project again.

Quoted from my other thread
Look who's paid us a visit :clapping

Dragged, kicking and screaming from its sleeping hole at home.
Image

When I finally got it to start (it was reluctant due to bad batteries), I thought, stuff it and just drove it to the unit instead of towing it.
This was a mistake, bad fuel, bad brakes, bad exhaust all added up to an interesting 1m drive but, it's here so all of the above can now be sorted.
Image

Work hopefully begins tomorrow with the strip down.
I'll keep the thread updated as i progress a little further.
