Seeing that image in this context has just made me laugh out loud - thanks for cheering up the day Mike!!!

I'm off to dig out my hammer and cold chisel now. I've got a few stubborn nuts to remove :o :lol:

The ghost from Scotland was not adverse to recommending the use of a hammer and chisel to remove and tighten the hub nuts fitted to the Minor 1000 rear axle. :roll:

Quietly I think allot of us do. Hopefully he'd appreciate the cartoon.
Best wishes,

never on the step,but once berated me for suggesting the use of an old wood chisel to remove spot welds and rivet heads,saying yes very good and ruin a good chisel ,when I replied "I did say old one Roy" Came back in bold capitals "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS AN OLD CHISEL" :D :D This forum has never been the same. :(

I bought the engine that's in my Trav from Roy; an 800 mile round trip! I'm glad I met him. A man of great Minor experience and of strong opinions that I didn't always agree with but which I always, always listened to. No question on this site ever went without an answer from Roy!
I still miss, MikeN.
Morris Minor, the car of the future. One day they will all look like this!
