Hello Folks,

Well, the long delays are beginning to take their toll. Karl got all the little
problems sorted on Saturday morning, then jumped in to take it for a quick
"road test" around the estate, but couldn't get it into gear...

So, the gearbox oil was drained over the weekend and refilled today. The
car does get into gear now, but it's still a bit stiff. It's booked in for an MoT
and tracking tomorrow morning.

Hopefully, I'll be taking it to Thurton in the evening for their first car meet
of the year. Failing that, the car is booked in for Friday afternoon at Clive
Atthowe's in Norwich for the mixture screw replacement and a rolling-road
adventure!

Regards,
Steve

Been a long time since I've heard an R5 burble.

Well, put your name down for my detailing day and I might, just might, let
you rev it for yourself
