It's a blue one.  If anything, it's a little tight.

Yes that’s right. Found that out with the other car. Although it then fouls or the plenum chamber. But easier to remove the plenum that the engine I suppose. 

Not a car or spanner in sight.. 😁

You should wipe the Vaseline off the lens, Wayne. Unless you’re planning on a few more selfies for Grindr.

So, Shelly Schumacher is taking a road trip up to Southport to visit friends for a few days. 

The M100 is running fine. Cured a small oil leak on the cooler feed pipe. All new brake lines and fluid. No issues, so hopefully an uneventful drive ahead.
