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.

Hun from the sun at angles 15 sent you a Blighty one, and stopped the old Merlin dead.....OR, did it just stop rotating???
