I'm sure we can break something for you when you get there! With luck we can mend it afterwards!

Can the gearbox come out at the same time? It's leaking a bit.

Always stuff to do Dougal...... I've bought a brake servo from VWJim, which he is bringing. With stock drums all round I hope it will make towing the Puck a little less scary!!! If there's room on the ramp I would like to try and fit that. May be interesting for others too? I know I have had lots of workshop space at the Tech weekends, so happy to be at the back of the queue ;-)

Anyone want a pair of 64-67 rear drums.

Brand new. Bought but not needed. Before I send them back, thought I'd offer them to any of you guys

Thanks Eddy, Steve, Nigel and everyone else for another great weekend with a nice bunch of people.
I even learned some stuff and got something fixed on my bus :D
I got roasted on the way back!

I'm sure we can fix even more busses next year!!!

Cheers,
Gertjan

Thanks to Eddy and everyone involved. Great spirit all weekend.

Even managed to get the new bus home without a tow truck thanks to the loan of the heat exchangers.

Need to know if Ed, (the new Website Co-ordinator), got home without the reoccurrence if the noise?

Ha,ha, took me a moment to get your "roasted" comment Gertjan Image. I take it the heat exchangers are working then? Must get on to do mine then!
