    I bet my socks Judge Dredd didn't have this to worry about with his 101 Taxi.

    Big day today, Grey Ghost came around and gave me a hand to do a clean up and tip run - huge than you mate. 👍

    Then we rolled Chucky out of the garage, put the roll bar, back bars and windscreen back on then on with the tilt. All back together and looking like he should.

    Have the dash and a few other things to do before heís running again, then I can get the power steering pump in and take him for a run.

    I bet he will be glad to see some different scenery after 5 years sitting in much the same spot.

    Hello Gavin - Homestar, and other knowledgeable types,

    I hope that you have fully recovered and that the MRI did not reveal any unpleasant surprises?

    Kind regards

    Thanks mate, sorry - I havenít checked in here for a while. Surgeon went over the MRI and great news - no surgery required, just a fairly drawn out recovery which is progressing well but still nowhere near 100% yet but good enough for me to return to doing just about everything I was before, although some things still hurt and sets me back a bit but overall going well. 👍

    And finally an update. Spent the weekend doing a bit on Chucky, and got the following done.

    - Clutch bled
    - Brakes bled a bit more - I have a pedal now, but itís not perfect by any means.
    - Dash back in
    - Throttle reconnected

    All this meant I could start and move him. Fired within a couple of seconds and settled down into a nice idle. Brakes checked and working although pedal is low. Still no pump for the PS but I gently drove across the road and parked up while I cleaned out a few things and now have the Jag back in the garage. 👍

    Went through several variations on where the best place for the PS pump needs to go - and havenít found a solution Iím happy to go with. About the only workable solution involves ditching the AC compressor which is my endless air system and although I can put an electric compressor in for this, and I will at some point - Iím now thinking I may use that spot for a new AC compressor - for an actual AC system at some stage in the future.

    So, I had a look online and have ordered a TRW electric PS pump which will mount up quite close to the box and will be a snap to plumb up. Given thereís a 100 amp alternator going in, the wiring will be up to this - this unit is used in several modern vans and is an OEM part so should do the trick. Draws between 2.5 and 80 amps depending on what youíre doing with the steering at any given time, so no dramas there. Should have that this week so with a bit of luck, the power steering may be complete next weekend. Then I just need to get the last pesky bits of air out of the brakes and I can take it for a good run to start the shake down process and see if anything needs tweaking or attention.

    That will allow me to get on with the other smaller mechanical jobs like some minor coolant weeps then itís onto the rear wheel carrier and the camping fitout so the fun will start there.

    Hopefully have my spare gearbox in transit shortly for a full rebuild and taper roller conversion too so that will complete the mechanicals and I should have near new driveline by the time I head off on the big trip in August. 👍

    Hooray, Gav. Now we might see some more bloody railroad stuff. Glad you don't need surgery that is always a bastard risk.
