    The Wagon engine fired up at 11.08 am this morning after its operation!

    The clutch works...

    The gearbox works in 1st and reverse...

    Works now stops at (12.30) today as it is the local village sports' day and my Chief Mechanic/Engineer is President of that Sports' Day.

    He can't finish off the work as he has to give out the prizes...

    You see, as an ex motor engineer, I think if he would have used a bigger hammer you would have got it back earlier:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    How many gears do you need JJ.

    I thought the black beast was a twist and go.

    I know Peter... I know... :Cool:


    Peter wouldn't have many clients who wanted a hand cut mahogany parquet floor...


    Rear wheel drive Seb... rear wheel drive... just as God intended...


    But Doc... would your shed make it down to Portugal without trouble from the windscreen wipers, cruise control, horn, engine management system and trailer brakes or is it the same as your RV??? :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    I love you all...

    Progress Report...

    Wagon purred out of the JCD Repairs facility at 4.35pm today, turned left and headed towards South Wales for Welsh Cakes cakes collection duties. Up through the gears it went as smooth as a baby's bottom with WD 40 on it.

    It is like driving a brand new van... goes like a dream! Thank you John, Kath and Gareth for all your sterling work.

    After a coffee and chat with Peter H and with the cakes on board, the Wagon headed for deeper Wales and is now outside our blessed Leader (may his name be praised) Jim's mansion. Sion (our blessed Leader's Boss) made me a coffee and I tucked into two delicious homemade gooseberry jam pastry cakes.

    Now posting this and then to bed given that all the above has been achieved with a stinking headache as a result of being forced to down beers and more beers yesterday at the sports' day.

    Tomorrow is badge making and marquee checking...

    JJ...:thumb:

    Photos to follow when on faster connection...
