You gonna get wet and cold tomorrow......
 
Tomorrow, Im fitting shelves so will be dry and warm.....


Will be in the garage, just hope the oil leak is something simple on the linkage aha! Put loads of sealant on the engine gaskets so stumped as to why it's leaking aha
Make sure those shelves are strong, don't want anything falling off onto the mini :)

Shelves are inside a cupboard thats been freed up by removing a ruddy great freezer we had in there....

Gonna be about 4 shelves in there, wife has claimed 2 of them.... I get the rest for tool storage and somewhere to keep a few spares dry...

Didn't do anything on the mini yesterday as I was helping a mate drop a Merc engine in his Humber Supersnipe :D

Today fitted the transfer casing, with new crankshaft oil seal, flywheel and clutch, timing chain cover (almost forgot the oil thrower :shy: ) Tried the old main bearing shell in the starter ring trick to lock the flywheel when torquing the crank and camshaft bolts up - works great.

Not done in a Mini, in someone else's vehicle. Went to Nirvana and shook hands with God. Visited Minisport and went to the Autosport show and shook hands with Paddy Hopkirk.

Looked at it and reminded myself to book its MoT......

 

Did some work on me other motor, my Volvo V70... god awful barge of a car, but bloody cumfy and great at towing the caravan... fitted a basic Parrot bluetooth handsfree kit, had to order a 'special' lead from Halfords to convert the Volvo wiring to ISO so that the Parrot kit could work.... Must have disturbed something behind the dash because the airbag warning light is on now and I cant turn it off with my OBDII dongle I use, have to take it to Volvo and probably hand over a leg as payment....
