Well, they know my history of military Rolls Royce helicopter engines , my hot rods, drag cars, monster truck etc so I will use the force from a distance and tell them it's all good( which of course, it is as you can see by my build pics ;) )
I will post what happens monday :good:

Not Good! :blackeye:
Breaks all seized up when they warned up and caused it to overheat :banghead: so new water pump and rad cap to go on and a full system flush, brakes will be looked at and maybe the pushrod behind the Master cylinder needs winding in a touch, so luckily my mates are looking in to it while I am away :good:
