Collect an engine time (part three)
So there I am driving south on the M1 off to see Cheesy (my old HA) but its not 100% a social call I was off to collect a spare engine for the pile. A 1159cc STD engine, a HA crossmembers and just for good measure a HA gearbox.
Its 8am and the radio is just announcing the closure of the QE2 bridge. OHHH how annoying is that. But luck would have it as i got within 1 mile of the M25 junction the radio cracked into life and said the bridge was now open, thanks god for that, saved about 60 miles of going the wrong way around the M25.
I arrived got to see Cheesy (looks the same as when I owned him, but now dirty and messy but loved. I left after collection my parts, a cup of tea and a tour of the railway (nice place).
I Got home around 4pm and unloaded the engine, now sat to one side to rebuild, Supect big ends, and piston slap…. but could be good once rebuilt..
