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.
