Finally we had some really cold weather again... -2 deg C with a wind chill 
of -6 ...;o)
Started the old girl up and got instant vacuum buildup. Interestingly with 
the oil relatively viscous, it made no difference to maximum [minimum] still 
28" wg near as damn it.

Hope you guys are having a great Christmas. Ours was spoilt somewhat by 
'granny' suddenly dieing. Realitively painless with a bleed in the centre of 
the brain. To think that 2 days before, she was still driving that GTD. I 
bought her. AFAIK at 82 , she was the oldest GTD driver in the world. I'm 
not sure if I should mention that in the service... There must be other 
diesel enthusiasts in the throng....
