I was intrigued about the Greek Couplers.  So I went to greekcouplers.com.  I don't think there's room for that kind of activity in that little tank.

OK, so we look like a mad woman's Subaru, all over the place.... That's OK, we just aren't telegraphing punches.

Two years since we were in racing mode and it becomes kind of apparent that like a goat in rut we kind of got preoccupied with the racing bit, and ignored a lot of the other stuff.

I've steadily been repairing stuff I need to work on the car, my welder was down, compressor too, grinders and stuff.on their last legs. Both of our workshops are getting properly fitted out, and then there's our old decrepit houses....

But the momentum is building and I hear the creaks and groans of the rigging as the sails fill...now, what was that about souvlakis Jim?

Yep, my place was built in 1901. I've been in since 1989. The lovely Corinne has decided that it's time to do some maintenance. More specifically, plaster that doesn't
fall off the walls one small part at a time. So plastering it is.

Ian the Dyno guy was around last night and we had a look at what we need to get it running and on his dyno
Also , after looking at the engine, with the new shad lights on while wearing my glasses, I would like to take this opportunity to withdraw any statements I may have previously  made about this engine having a one piece seal type crank. It has a flange on the end of the crank and the block has been converted to a two piece seal. Picture to follow

Yep Don, I have been doing the little "enquiries" and if it weren't for a piggy back freight offer, this wouldn't be worth it.

$300 US plus for coast to coast.........

   A friend of mine shipped two turbos, and two waste gates to Sidney. Fed Ex wanted $395 for each box. USPS shipped them for the bargain price of $190 each. Before shipping he contacted the buyer and he said that the cost was as expected. Ouch!

Yep, then ya add in the exchange rate & some import duty & now it just cost you an arm & a leg to get the $hit. I remember what it was like on the receiving end of all that & that's what prompted me to help the Ozzy Battlers here.

  I think Tauruck [Mike] said he needs 8 Mickey Thompson tires to have spares for the car he's building and said with shipping and dutys to SA it will run him $40,000. That'll bring a tear to your eye, and make your wallet weap, too.
