I've had a bit of a tidy up, ready for an assault in the new year (hope its a bit warmer). Pleased with it so far. Stripped the engine and found it in good fettle.

I'm painting the inside bare blocks of the garage with masonry paint, seems to be taking for ever. Then new uprated electrics with LED lights. Should see my days out then  Cheesy

Now I've seen what a difference it makes I wish I'd done that to my garage years ago!  Don't need to now as I don't do spannering any more.

Finally found some interest to move forward with the red rooster. Pulled the engine to bits to get the alloy parts blasted clean. Japs are cunning though, 12mm socket for 8mm bolts, then a few 13 thrown in for the brackets. It seems all the 12's are fine thread into the engine. Kept going and just hope I can remember where it all goes Grin

Nipped down to Halfrauds to get some Jizer and the van oil light came on, then it stopped, the van that is. Went to restart, dead as a parrot! Called the recovery man, seems my battery just died, checked out the electrics, all appears OK. Very expensive tin of Jizer, came with a free battery  Grin  Pleased to say all is now normal...............I hope. Bought the battery in Scarborough last time it died, seems that may have been 10 years back, is nothing built to last anymore Cheesy
