The exhaust manifold gasket has been blowing so I replaced it this evening.
But, of course, only 4 out of 5 bolts will go in. An hour's fannying about is enough for one night so I have walked away in the hope that when I come back to this job it will go straight in.
I am worried it only wants to go in cross threaded though which is not a good plan.
In the meantime though it looks like it's goodbye to my Vitesse which I ahve owned for 12 years now - sad but it had to go. I have been finding all the spares out as well this evening so that it can all go on Saturday.
The car has taken me round Britain twice, round the Nurburging and on many other adventures as well as teaching me alot about patience etc - never seem to learn tho.
