Wave as you pass Lanark, Davie!

Surprisingly the book time for the clutch is only 6.5 hours - think you'd have to motoring to do that! Mind you book time for a C5 Mk2 2.0 HDi is only 5.5 hours, and I know from experience you'd REALLY have to be motoring to do that!

6.5 Hours :shock: :lol: :rofl2: :twisted: The best WFA haver ever done one is a whole day...

Poor old Davie's has taken nearly 6.5 Months :lol:

You don't use a clock to measure my repair times, you use a calendar...

While you might need a calendar to time Jim in his work, you would have to wait until the planets align before his work would fail. Slow he may be, but reliable he DEFINITELY is.

And reliable is what I want. I would rather know that the jobs are done properly and no quick fix bodge jobs. A quick fix bodge job has its place at times, but not on a special keeper.

Ahh, so this is perhaps not the best time to tell you I re-used your old clutch, bodged up the handbrake cables with baler twine and relined the brake pads with plywood then..

Amazing how you can shine up old brake discs with a brillo pad!

I also re-used the old oil from the gearbox...

The new stuff you bought Davie, I sold for a massive profit on eBay...
