Our Facebook friends and Instagram followers will have already seen this, but in case anyone was wondering why the blog has been a bit quiet recently, well, this happened…
Aside from the embarrassment of being rescued by not one, but two T5s, the problem was unfortunately quite serious. A valve broke, dropping into a cylinder. The end result was a destroyed cylinder head, piston and conrod. It wasn’t pretty. Readers of a sensitive disposition should look away now.
So we’re off the road for a while the engine is rebuilt by trained professionals.
We’ll be back to adventuring and drinking tea in muddy fields as soon as we can.
