Mike Heywood's car need a bit of attention engine wise. The sump pan needs to come off, oil pump and drive out, rear main off and replace the rear crank seal, ( i've a plan for that) new pump in and sump back on. The inlet manifold needs whipping off and new gaskets fitted. Car is prep'd and ready but i've just had a hernia op' and have to be careful for a while. With that in mind the wife's whisking me off to the caravan tomorrow for a week or so, remove me from temptation so to speak. The car is on the ramp but needs to be off for when i get back so i can get back to some sort of work, starting nice and steadily with the wife's front to back brake pipes.
So, is there anyone out there local to Rochdale with the skills to help out ? A good machanic with V8 experience would be preferable. Poor lad has already missed his first Belle Vue's which is a shame as it was all but ready to go until oil pressure gremlins got it the day before the first Vue. All it needed was to sit on the scales and re-adjust for a couple of changes we've made.
You can reply on here or by PM.
The lads will be there to help out and the kettle is always on. Mike's had plenty of practice with that over the last few years !
