Let's try this again...

Hi Guys

I hope all is well.

Thankfully the problem with the 308 was nothing more that a buggered exhaust manifold. I have attached a pic of the offending item

Anyhow, I unfortunately have been under the whip so left it for some time and only picked her up this morning.

All seems to be going great - temp and all and revving very sweetly.

Holding thimbs for no more issues.

Kind regards

Mike

Thanks guys

Weather is superb here - very hot and dry (until late afternoons when we have regular swift downpours!)

I am going to try and get a lot of mileage under my belt!
