    Took a step back and removed the reducer and plug from the pre-heat system as I found that it was using more fuel. I will have to manufacture a some sort of plug that will fit properly.

    I have finished an engine stand with large enough wheels to handle the rough floors of my sheds. It is made of about 90% recycled material. Now, I'll buy some decent 12mm bolts for it and also make a temporary clean room so I can strip an engine I have bought from a wrecker.

    After many complaints from passengers, especially in the third row, regarding the harshness of the ride with the 2" lift. I have fitted the standard springs and new rear shocks. It drives like a totally different beast, smooth and stable. I think the problem is the springs were meant for a TB42 with roof rack, sliders winch and rear drawers. The RB30 block and gearbox are a fair bit lighter than the TB.

    I will keep the lift, because I still want to set the Old Trol up as a tourer.
