Have you fixed the turbo leak? If not, we can tighten the nuts on Thursday
at Hickling using my new and expensive (GBP30 _EACH_) Stahlwille flare nut
sockets. I've got the torque settings on the microfiche. We'll be having a
"wrenching" session at John Robinson's, only half a mile from the pub, during
the earlier part of the day. I hope to get his MB going again, and perhaps try
a new fuel metering head on mine.
