    Is that another welch plug in the back of the head ? Will you be replacing it while it is out?

    Yes, it is, and no, I'm not replacing it while the engine is out. For a couple of reasons - removing the head with the engine in situ is just as easy as while it is out, and that is in an even worse position relative to the engine stand.

    The position of the engine stand relative to the engine was made to allow access to the clutch - doing it again I probably could have made the clutch a bit harder to get at, but still manage, and made the welch plugs easy - hindsight is wonderful! Last time I did a clutch by pulling an engine out I did not have an engine stand, so this my first experience using a stand.

    This exercise reminds me that at the 70th at Cooma I was talking to the elderly owner of a Series 1 who had prepared for his drive home with a leaking welch plug on the back of the engine by putting a block of softwood against the back of the engine held in place by a couple of turns of fencing wire around the block lengthwise, and twitched tight. He said he had done the same in Africa decades ago.

    Nothing for the rest of the week - off tomorrow to Sydney for a medical appointment. Should be back Friday. Got nothing done today, getting packed and making sure everything was set for my absence.
