    Last night I was treated to a meal cooked by Kath who, like the perfect hostess she is, included all my favourites!

    All prepared and presented in good time for the City v Liverpool match kickoff!

    This morning the Wagon enters the JCD Motor Repairs headquarters and work starts.

    Before you know it, the gearbox and clutch are out (especially fast because John had an excellent "spanner and socket passer")

    The gearbox gets taken to the gearbox man and the clutch gets an examination...

    Never in all my life has servicing and MOT preparation been such a pleasure. It is superb here... a relaxed atmosphere and quality workmanship...

    The extra parts have been ordered, the rear crankshaft oil seal has been replaced and the Wagon is about to be pushed out of the garage so I can use the sink and shower without filling the pit with water! (no grey water tank on the Wagon)

    Tomorrow the cambelt gets changed along with the tensioner and water pump.

    PS If you didn't know CITY WON 3-0 !!!

    JJ is a pleasure to have here with us and to cook for - there was an option for a roast chuck dinner or his fav fray bentos etc... but the Wagon is getting the special gal treatment as it so rightly deserves.... its still taboo for me to enter :Wink::Wink: but had sneaky peeks and looks real friendly

    JJ also shown us this evening how well he does his Magic with the cards.... damn I watched so close but he still amazed us both and I couldnt see how it was done... thank you JJ for that x

    It was lovely having Lynn and Ash(Steve)stay here with us also, even though the weather was unkind... look forward to seeing you both at Bath x

    It is great being part of the best group of folk you would ever like to meet

    I see you have the reverse valve rolling pinion there JJ.

    Are you going to upgrade it?
