Glad to see them still in use.

There are a couple still in use here in the Lea Valley Park too.

Public foot and cycle traffic only but used regularly by Park Vehicles up to the size of a normal digger.

One on a farm access track off the A173 between Great Ayton and Stokesley, here in the North Riding.  Those big pins that hold the bits together always look very tempting to pull out!

What with rust and friction loads probably even more difficult than a steering relay to extract/

This one was fully restored 2 years ago. They reduced max load to 3.5 tonnes. And max height of 2.30 m. This is to prevent heavy farm traffic crossing. In due time i will post pics of the other 2 still in use today.

Many thanks to all that came to my little workshop on a lovely sunny day, here in the north east of Scotland.

Dale,

It would be excellent if you could move to Cambridgeshire!

It looked a sunny day when I flew over at 7am.

You didn’t wave back.

As my knees are not what they were when I rebuilt my LR in 1990, I adjusted the pedal stops & linkage to lower the brake & clutch pedals by 3/4"  ready to drive up to Cumbria.  Changed all the oils and am now replacing wheel hub oil seal to stop a very small oil leak to the brakes.

It has been very unusually dry and dusty for weeks here. With all the pollen and tree bud debris blowing about, things still got a bit grubby. So I gave the 107SW a quick wash and rub down.

4 Thanks.

Went to the overland show in Stratford on Avon and came away with an awning perfect for light weight camping.

Took a relaxing drive in the nice weather.
All very good and happy until I noticed that the engine seemed to loose power.
Noticeable slower off in second gear getting onto the main road.
Headed home trying to figure what was wrong.
Took me a while, but suddenly noticed I was still in overdrive!  ;D
Continued the nice drive!  :D
