    Well good news is that it passed an MOT! Will get back into fault finding in the next couple of weeks. In the frost I thought the battery was going to run out of juice before it would start!

    Good news that its passed the MOT. But is it working you say that you need to continue with the fault finding, was the timing ok ?

    Well little development. Seems like I'm losing 5th gear, getting v noisy. So I'm pussying out of the fault finding! Have a rear damaged D2 td5 with low mileage so I'm going to straight swap the engine and box, at least that's the plan!
