Re: get you home bodges

My bodges that come to mind are a Rover 800 drivers wiper arm snapped off so I swapped the smaller passenger side one to get me from Torquay to home. A mk1 Ford escort exhaust silencer mounting snapping so I used my belt to tie it up..ruined when I got home! The loss of coolant in my old Moggie whic...

Re: interesting one exhaust valve sticking open

That's a weird one Martin I'm glad that it wasn't a head gasket problem, I wonder if there is some lube that you can use to avoid the problem happening again?
