Fitting the bushes was surprisingly easy given my usual experience that the rule of 3 applies!
So, with that done I moved on to the seized heater valve which was not so easy. I had to drill out the centre of the valve which took quite some time, slowly going up in drill bit size.

OK, test run time and
- There was still no heat from the heater!
- The valve popped out spilling hot water into the footwell and over my left foot"
That's enough for this week whilst I ponder my next move.
Meanwhile, the car is running well, the overdrive works and the clutch works so some progress is being made.
