Just fitted new ARP head studs and new head gasket, this was the last job to do before the Rally. Now just down to cosmetics. ( for the car not me)

Been putting in a few days getting Blackie ready, bought a few bits from ESM and still a bit to do, two weekends available to do it in (away one in the middle), plus a few jobs for Mrs Monk! Very Happy

Mathew you may have to turn the lights on and break into your sleep time

Already do that to keep up with all the jobs of keeping the kids, wife and house going. Believe me, sleep time is not even close to that regularly recommended.

And just another point, with the regular occurrence of loss of power, turning on the lights isn't always an option. Ergon power supply to my area seems to be a part time thing recently.

Apart from it being cheaper to freight it down.
Morrx would make it but unfortunately it is now beyond me.

Yeah Graham, having done it just once or a dozen times, I'm with you! Backloading from Darwin would be much cheaper. See you there!
