Well its been a while since there was an update on the state of the D3 or how many kidneys and other organs I had left to sell off...

The D3 is now back and running. Broken camshaft was the main issue but thankfully no damage to pistons, valves, block etc. New cylinder head, cams, other bits...lots of investigation and labour time...

Oh - and fuel all over a hot engine last Sunday afternoon. LR mechanic came to me this time and all due to a 3 euro clip on an injector (Bodsy called it right). All clips replaced plus a couple of pipes for good measure (all free of charge), profuse apologies from the mechanic who also spent time cleaning the engine bay and driveway of the spilt fuel and all is now good. Runs and drives great :thumbright:

At last... :)

Good news John :thumbright:

How many children did you sell off and how many organs are now walking around in other people?
