There's many a libellous comment could be made in reply to that Jim.

Not as yet, I'm a bit stuck. I've got a couple of cylinders, an ezibleed kit, some random springs and am just waiting for the shoes to arrive before I attempt to put it all back together.

Give me a shout if you need a spare pair of hands.

Thanks for the offer James. Can I have them permanently? Mine are causing me terrible problems. Apart from the numbness, the most irritating thing is the neurologist said I must try to sleep with straight arms (at the elbow) and wear wrist supports on both wrists as often as I can. Have you ever tried to find a "fashionable" wrist support? You know yourself I'm no style icon, but bloody hell, wandering around wearing those pinky beige things on both hands makes me feel about 90. Even more annoying, they make "nice" ones in kids sizes, but not adult sizes. Hopefully my brake shoes will here on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Trying to sleep with straight elbows is no fun. Been through similar scenarios many times after overcooking it at work.

It's not something I've ever done, it's really hard work. I always sleep on my side. I find sleeping on my back with my arms straight impossible Ulnar nerve dysfunction he calls it. My hands do actually work, I just can't feel properly a lot of the time or have no strength. There's nothing physically wrong with them apart from nerve damage in my elbows and wrist

It's why I want to get the V6 heater fans, seats and AC working then it's a nicer place to be in the "heat" and I can drive around in an auto, which I really enjoy as I'm becoming an old fart

I'll pop over and start the swap for you Jim.

I guess it'll be much improved

Having gone from a lazy three litre auto driveline, into a well-worn 1.4 with terminal clutch issues, the appeal of auto boxes is strong to me as well.
