    Sorry to hear about your van Bill.
    Life can be a bitch at times, but we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and just get on with it.
    Good luck and hope you get it sorted soon.(y)

    After all your trouble finding and fitting the replacement engine. I feel for you. I wrecked a mini engine a week after I rebuilt it but that was nothing, very easy to fix.

    Come on bill this from a man who put together the famous fix it meet
    When you calm down it won't seem so bad then a a bit of graft and a few nuts and bolts later you will be off again
    You know you can
