Apologies, I've been all but completely inactive on the forums so far this year! In any case, the short answer is no, nothing's happened with it since moving to the other garage. For some reason I'm bloody knackered all the time at the moment and tend to just crash in the evenings, so my productivity has dropped right off!

What time I have spent in the garage has been dedicated to other vehicles; a new rear crank seal on the Series III after a claggy ford killed the last one (won't forget the flywheel housing drain plug again!), a gearbox re-build for a mate, and I'm half-way through sorting a cylinder head for another - just waiting for word from the machine shop. The Carawagon has rather been pushed to the back of the queue - the head has been in bits since October! Had a quick look at it one evening a few weeks back, and can say that the inlet valve stem seals are a pain to fit. They're internal o-rings. It might just be me, but I couldn't get even one to seat.

Must get that Photobucket album sorted!
