    I think if you take the battery out you can unscrew the rod,it does look a bit short so straightening it may help or replace it with a piece of studding.

    I'd say take the prop off and do the work off the vehicle. Makes it 100% easier. I had to use the press at work. Just make the slip joint so when the shaft inevitable falls apart you can reassemble it.

    Mostly scrubbing and scraping at the masses of baked on yuck in the rocker covers and liners - improved but still a long way to go. Wife worked on the block cleaning and bits of engine bay as she has more patience with fiddly / delicate bits than me. We make a good team. Hopefully the weather will hold and we will get a lot further forward this week, although I am working and we are both being beaten by the chiro on Thursday.

    Anyone know which way fuel trims go on the Thor? Is a negative number rich or lean? RAVE doesn't seem to say, nor does nanocom docs

    Power steering doesn't sound happy :( not the usual pump noise, but a squeak from the drivers side as i turn the wheel, assume that's the steering box :(

    It sounds like a powered noise rather than purely mechanical. Need to get someone turning the wheel for me while i have a listen
