Saturday 21st August
Following on from last week, the team began the
day by finally getting the entrance door lock striker plates
into the correct position on the front pillar.
After a bucket of tea CDK was once again started
up and after lots of poking and prodding, several things were
noticeable:- the fantastic look in Rick eyes, as he hadn't been
here for the previous start up, secondly, no water leaks Hurrah!
and oh bugger she won't build up her air properly!
So after a bite of lunch and another bucket of
tea, Pete set to in removing the unloader valve, pressure
regulator valve and the compressor valve in readiness of their
overhaul and refit. Steve dropped the water from the engine,
ready for another "Glug" of radiator flush and by the end of the
day the engine was drained of its oil.

OK, so today we were Barnsley bound, seats are on
the agenda and tranny vans now have 6 gears! and after several,
restricted. mucky and in Steve's case very sweaty hours, 45
seats and a set of legs were lugged back to the correct side of
the Pennies! Another mission accomplished.
