You must prioritise stuff Jim and only do what you are comfortable with. I know that's not easy, having had a broken brain myself, but you must try to keep the stress levels down.

Thanks Davie, that's exactly what I'm trying to do, difficult as it is...

If there's anything that can be done to help Jim let us know.

Even if it's just a chat and a cup of coffee or such give me a shout.

Still owe you a shot out in the Saab sometime for that matter...

Thanks both... Far too ill at the moment to do anything...

The edge has well and truly been fallen over...

If you need any help, Jim, put out the call. We will do what we can to help. You just concentrate on getting yourself back to good health. EVERYTHING else is of a lesser importance, and I do mean everything (your Dad will understand, and he will not want you to have an accident trying to go down and visit him).

Thanks all...

The past two days have been extraordinarily difficult and it's hit me for six - as it does... More very difficult days to come before they get better I fear..

One bright spot is that late this afternoon I was paid a visit. Long story short is that the drive shaft is back in, the new seal is in, the gearbox is holding oil, the clutch is bled and the car is 99.9999% back together and almost ready for a road test...

More details in due course...

That will help take the stress off a bit. I know that you enjoy working on mechanical things, but knowing that somebody else is relying on you to fix a problem, even if they are not putting pressure on you (and Davie certainly would not have done that) would still be a problem you could do without.

James, Davie's clutch job has been the least of my stressors! It's a job that I've enjoyed and has been incredibly therapeutic...

Only because Davie has been so good over how long it's taken though...

I understand, and anything that is therapeutic will help. Still, deep in your sub-conscious there would be the knowledge that Davie is relying on you to get the job done (deadline or not), and that cannot help.

[emoji6] made me laugh. No doubt Jim will do likewise. You are talking 2017 though aren 't you!

Because it's not my daily, and if Jim hadn't kindly volunteered to do it for me, it would not have been with me by now anyway. It would either have been locked up in my daughters lock up, or been sold on to someone else, possibly back to Chris, possibly not. Or been in the lockup awaiting the tct ripped out and a V6, possibly even an auto chucked in to it[emoji12] [emoji4]

So don't stress about it Jim, I'm actually tempted to fly down Friday now, drive you to your dad in it on Saturday to give it a good test and then help you with anything else you needed help with on Sunday before driving home sun night.

I have let Jim know, that there has been no hurry James. That was also part of the agreement when we decided to do this. The happenings have been unfortunate for Jim, with his own health and his dad's, but these things have been unavoidable. I have learned, through my own ongoing health problems and my addiction problems that a busted car is the very least of things to worry about. In fact if Jim wanted to take it to bits again for therapeutic reasons then he is welcome to get the spanners out again!
