The return of Morph :-)

Well, Mrs D spontaneously sprung on me that we could fetch Morph back from
Ma and Pa's today.

Bunged on the last couple of nuts to the dip stick tube. Threw the lid on ,
opened the battery door (incase the starter jammed again) and then turned
him over. Fired up on about the second rotation from cold having been stood
foe around 4 days untouched :0)

Trundled back steady, exhaust blowing at the down pipe under load but I
expected that. I've yet to tighten the bolts.

Still cruised back at 60mph along the main drag without breaking into a
sweat.

Parked him up and heard a "splat hiss" from the engine bay. Turned out to be
some water running into the engine bay from the passenger seat (still got
the leak to fix!).... phew!

Thanks to all those who offered advice and pointers in my lowest moments of
despair.

Just got to psych myself up for a trip to the petrol station now.

:-)

Glad to hear you have the Morph back to health I was beginning to wonder if
the cold was keeping you away from the engine bay. Have a nice hot coffee
and a choccy bikkie then try not to think about the obscene profits of
petrol companies.

That is an achievement! (both the 'cruise' at 60 and the not having to
sit in a sauna)

I can give you advice for installing an LPG kit if you need it

I dont think i'll be able to cope with driving my 101 now after
driving my car for the last month on LPG. It still feels like theyve
made a mistake when i go to pay for it!
I'm dreading filling the landy up over the next few days too :(

It was tempid inside. The Engine lid rubber seal helps lots as does the
seals refitted around the inspection holes. I hit the scrappy on a mission
:-)

Just need to make some plates to cover the old heater duct holes.. which are
increadibly useful (you can get your arm through em)
when rebuilding the top end.

He took me to work today :-) I was deliberating for ages.....

Laguna..101..Laguna 101...

<look out of window at snow>

buggerit 101.. Petrol station and MANIC GRIN .... bar skids skid too well on
slush and ice, sledge like!

I'm definately up for LPG next but it will have to take it's place in the
queue of "Things for Lee to do" list. Which includes at the mo some house
stuph and Disco disc's. Ah well at least my driveway is semi complete again.

How noisy ? The new silencing kit I had made by noisekiller works well
on Bob, a GS, on an ambi it would make a hell of a difference - and we
get a club discount.

I had a quote from Hanno for one but I know Hannos are the mutts nuts (Uses
F1grade materials etc) ... I think I can still feel the bump from when my
chin hit the floor.

Are they reasonable Steve?

I've been using Underlay and carpet but the trouble with that is the
underlay quickly begins to degrade once it's been cooked and removed a few
times. Made a very noticeable difference though.

One of my pet hates is that the overflow on the rad has a small jubilee
clip. Try as I might I can't get it to stop pulling the rubber seal from the
hood when I remove the lid. Am I alone in this experience?

Just been out and put a new nut and bolt on the downpipe. Much better :-)
Almost luxury!

Pity Sellafield hasn't got a boot sale on this weekend, I'll bet
they've got loads of that going cheap (and no need for a heater) :-)

Oy, I'd rather Sellafield kept all its lead thank you. Being 30 miles
downwind in the prevailing direction... If the beggers don't notice a
leak of 83 cubic meters (18,257 gallons) of Nitric Acid containing 20
tonnes of Uranium and 160kg of Plutonium for several months I want all
the shielding they have kept in place.
