He is still around. He dropped off the forum, came back, went quiet again and is back again. Try looking for northern_mike.

Well, today is a happy one..

After not far shy of 400 miles covered since the last work to re-seal it, my V6 still has a bone-dry hydraulic pump :-D :-D :-D

I think that is one problem that's been well and truly put to bed now...

She performed just lovely yesterday on the run to Somerset and back. :-D

Excellent, a quite capable motor. Remember the power delivery of Rattiva II? add a few percent! And just flick it through wet roundabouts. Drove from Minehead to Holford with the top down without a jacket, outside temp 10C. Most pleased :-D :-D

A/L 2mos, see you Tuesday?

Be intersting to see how well it works...
I tried something similar on my first Blingo, the only thing it warmed up was it's lead :lol: I suppose such devices are limited by the amount of current that can be drawn from a fag lighter.
