    You know me too well :D:D:D

    Why can't RAVE just say that :)

    I intend to be more accurate than Mike ; I saw his readings lol :rolleyes:
    He does videos now on paintings, like Bob Ross! Explained the main part but there are intricacies.

    I understand exactly now. I got mixed up with what cam (as you knew). Forgot bout the feeler gauge (think it's pass side on video)

    It will have to wait until I can get time to get cam cover gasket (+pegs), then in true Bagshot fashion - I may aswell do oil/filter, then maybe clean sump/gasket while I am there, then if manifold comes off I may aswell sort plugs and oh no what have I done! ;)
    I should get an NVQ for this :rolleyes:


    No wait, I am NVQ :p:D:eek::D

    Thankyou guys , again!
    My P38 (and therefore my happiness) owe you a debt of gratitude :)

    Just to cheer you up talking about debt, I have just worked out that my rebuild in parts alone, lincluding all chains, sprockets, gaskets but less the head..
    £680.00. be sure before you jump in, I spent a good month chasing part prices so think that's not far off..:):):)

    And be careful tightening up because the metal is soft as butter. As me how I know ...

    Yes, that's about what I costed up for the chains, tensioners and sprockets. Refurbed pump is around the same, maybe a bit more.

    The tools to do it would have cost £400 so I'm on a win. £680 is affordable, over time. Hate to think what JLR would charge :eek:

    Big factor will be time as it's daily driver on shoe string budget.
    Just static timing adjust for now

    Stripped a f*cking thread tightening up - and that was using a torque wrench set to the proper setting.

    The pump. Damn nearly lost the chain off the sprocket. There was a certain amount of bad language but recovered and a bit of green Loctite came to the rescue.

    Drove 480 miles in 24 hours and got 29.5 mpg:cool::D Never seen that before when I've been driving. steady 2,200rpm and trying to avoid the motorway knobbers that go 70 brake, 44 brake, zoom brake, then suddenly go to 55 mph from 70 then off back to 70mph again.......
