They do get a bit boring don't they JJ. I sometimes wish something would go wrong, just so I could attempt to fix it. I should have stuck with those RVs :rofl:

No problems... nothing wrong.

Marvellous what a few quid back hander, a case of cheap plonk, and an eye flutter from a French chic will get you.........

Yep. Can't pass the MOT with an engine that doesn't rotate.
True.......So what happened to your engine?? Hun from the sun at angels 15 sent you a Blighty one, and stopped the old Merlin dead.....OR, did it just stop rotating???:):)

It used 4 litres of oil in 180 miles. Then sounded like a bag of chisels in a large shredding machine, but not for long. To be fair, it was 35 years old and had done several hundred thousand miles. The old style O-ring valve stem oil seals had, apparently, long since rotted away.

Excuse me...

How did a thread about a beautiful, classic, European designed and built, top of the range motor home degenerate into discussing poxy engines for ostentatious Yank Tanks?

(Unless, of course, it is an Airstream which would be a different story altogether.)
