Just when he thought it was going well, he found two new leaks in the rear tub.

I usually get a bit of moss in the window runners, but that's ridiculous.

There were clearly signs of excessive smoking.
 
He knew the rear tub was original but he wasn't certain about the cabb age.

At least the "Vegetables" still have the same transport as their leader !

Can we please stop this childish nonsense?

If the buck has a leek in it after a trip from the allotments it probably due to the wrong type of mushroom rivets being used. A Swede I know says you can fix any holes with a squirt of horseradish sauce as long as you can find a pump'kin big enough.

Alternatively, you can use a pair of parsnips to turnip the rivet ends to form a cauliflower although I suspect you may still need to beet the rivet to get a good seal.

The CORNy jokes are SPROUTing out all over the place. Any way just look at the bottom right hand corner of the photo, it's not a Series 1 at all, it's a Lighter weight! Thinking up these jokes is a real fag.

That's an excellent restoration, do you have any pictures of the engine which is squeezed in there?

Last week I took the cylinder head off to  investigate no compression on cyl 1&2, Found nut off the front stud that also holds the rocker shaft down lying by the valve spring! When the head was lifted, no big surprise thats where the gasket was blown. Ordered parts from Dunsfold, they arrived 10.30 next day! Excellent. After cleaning up, today the head goes back. I think it is at least 10 years since the the head was last off.

I'm a radio ham ... curious as to what frequencies upon which it operates.
