9 days to go...
After a late last night last night and an all day session by Rick the 4x4 is running again.

New synchromesh, clutch and last thing a fuel pump. This sprung a leak and started leaking fuel everywhere so a new one was fitted.

Hope to get a drive a few hundred miles to test it and then its time to fit the lights...

12 days to go...

Well Rick was delayed so the gearbox still awaits the new synchromesh. That should happen tomorrow with a bit of luck and then testing can begin.

All was not lost today tho as I managed to fit new rear springs and some engine sensors so we can monitor how cold it is!!

Tomorrow will be a late night but with a bit of luck the 4x4 will be back on the road...

Happy New Year!!

Only 14 days to go and team 4 have a bit of work to do. The 4x4 had a clutch noise before Christmas and so today the engine and gearbox were taken out for inspection. We found a failure in the pressure plate which explains the noise so tonight the car is in bits.

Luckily Co-Driver Rick is the gear box guru so he is going to overhaul the gearbox while it is out of the car. Monday 5th should hopefully see the car back on the road so I'll post more then.

I'll leave you with a pic of the car in pieces at Louis Barbour's workshop.
