Aw JC, good to hear from you and I’m glad hayling is working out well for you. Puk has had a significant engine issue but is now having some easy mot fettling with muttley. I will also let him explain the engine issue once we are motd again thank you for the Christmas thoughts and no doubt hayling will be on the meet list soon, same right back at ya!!

Hey, Dodge, was only talking about you the other day, I’m still waiting on your details naw we should be alright now. The bottom end of the last one was more of a disaster than we could have ever thought and are through heads when we assumed it should be okay...it’s a bit too technical for me to explain succinctly and I think Mutts wants to put up some piccys to warn others, anyhoo how are you??
