I suppose Serek will change 2 wishbones, cam belt, cam cover gaskets and water pump in a morning, easy, and have time for a coffee break and a chat with his customer. JamesV6CDX says I should be able to change a clutch in 4 hours - not me. I like to savour such jobs and take my time. I am forever putting down spanners amd losing them, reassembling things in the wrong order and finding I have bought the wrong parts.

Serek tells me it will be a long day! :D ;)

It will be for me that's for sure.  I will be setting off at 0500 to get to his garage for 0830.  From down here to there is the dreaded M25 and the Dart crossing.  Setting off one hour later would be disastrous! ::) ::) ;)
Will you hang around and watch, or explore the town and sit in the library for hours? I am curious how many of those operations can be done simultaneously without conflict. Do let us know. Serek must be very confident, nothing must go wrong and it must be done in the day!

If you can cross the river before 6 AM, Lizzie, it will be free!  ::) :y

Ron.

P.S. Also free after 10 PM, if you have a REALLY long day!!!

That is true Ron! :y :y

I had forgotten that, and I certainly will have a free crossing at least in one direction 8) 8) :D :y

I have that wonderful feeling of achievement again!!! :D :D :D :D :D

Today I got the sixth new spark plug in,  ....

6 plugs on an Omega are easy  ::) ::)
To change them on my Smart Roadster you need to remove the back end panels first clicky  :y :y

Serves you right for buying a Smart  ;D

That won't work... Andy would then have four pedals to contend with, and we all know he can barely manage two :D
