All at sea

Amongst the tasks that got completed this week was to visit the cottage Gallery in Wedmore, Somerset. (Do visit if you are passing by - its a lovely little gallery holding a huge amount of wonderful, creative goodies). On the way home I took a little detour to see the donkey sculpture on the outside edge of Weston-Super-Mare and then visited the seaside. As the picture of my satnav shows I can drive over the sea!

Quiet start to the year. Only a couple of short days in the studio as yet and very little to show for it. The car project made another mileston - The engine and gearbox are out. Just need breaking up into pieces for me to use. When I lifted the block out I noticed a patch of oil spreading on the floor. Then noticed the flow running across my trainer. So just taking the drain plug out of the engine leaves quite a lot of oil behind. Having struggled with progress I can recomend the use of a sledgehammer and scaff pipe to 'ease' the drive shaft out of the gear box. Just as well it ain't going back!
