    Is that a 3-0L or a 2.3 though? and will it still work with the automatic box?

    Me thinks the man from Pecks hill hasn't thought this through properly. :winky:

    What a brilliant solution:thumb:

    Do away with reverse gearing altogether- stop the engine then restart turning it in the opposite direction. Foolproof :ROFLMAO:

    We were only asked to supply a solution to the clutch judder------SORTED!!!
    the nitty gritty re MPG and fitting it etc is down to Fiat
    I have suggested a small buldge in the bonnet may be reqd:thumb:
    also as the engne is marine based the water ingress shoud not effect it
    well thought out id say:Doh:

    True it was the thought of towing a fuel bowser that was putting me off.:winky:No room for a toad.
