That does sound like awesome fun! It's something I've always fancied doing but never felt brave enough to try it hehe

You'll have to keep us up to date with progress if you can.

Well i had a set of 135 / 80 13 tyres so i banged those on the rims, narrow i know but ideal for me for now.

As for the engine, not good news, sounds like piston slap :unsure: its not the water pump or alternator, and sound internal like a tapping nose at around 3000 - 3500 which dies above or below that . Remember this was an engine form a scrapper cleaned and rebuilt, i didn't machine for new bearings or use new pistons rings, i used what I had with new gaskets and seals..

BUT hey so what I am still going..... :cheer:

I leave tomorrow AM around 4 - 5am. plan is see how far i get ... if it dies on me then by the time i get the AA to relay me home I might still have time to jump in the VW Pussykat and use that instead to finish off the holiday....

Nervous YES risky YES but then whats life about if one doesn't take a risk
