yep, getting the rot gone is the aim. time though as you say, is too easy to let slip through your fingers. i'm constantly juggling between not leaving anything to chance and not building up extra workshop rent, i can waive my time to get the job finished but the workshop space rent still racks up every week
doesn't help when i have nights like tonight
leave work early (no stopping for dinner), go to BLS in lincoln to drop off a gearbox for rebuild then call in to see the 145's new buyer before getting a couple of hours in down the workshop.
not too bad in reality,
meet new owner, he likes it, a lot. then having a chat praising the 145 about how reliable it's been etc.................battery light comes on
made my excuses and left before i ran out of battery, still about 15 miles from home, in the dark. praying there would be enough charge in the battery to get me home, there was just enough but down to about 11.6v by the time i got home.
so nothing at all done on the sud tonight, and this weekend will be taken up with fitting a new alternator. one of those times when i wished i'd fitted a new one in the first place.
you can see it but getting it out is a real pain.
engine mounting off,
engine lowered down,
just to get a friggin alternator changed that could have at least lasted another few weeks
will make up the hours in the week, need to crack on now the finish line is in sight
