    Ended up fixing this leak and found 2 more around the fuel pump, just loose hose clamps.
    Tightened it all up and it seems to have improved cold starts dramatically! Also found I am only getting around 10.5V to the glow plug rail when I have 12.8V at the battery, that can't be helping cold starts at all.

    Glow plug voltage is rated to 11V on those, so that sounds right to me. Unless the rail gets the full 12v and converts it at the plug. Not sure...

    Yesterday we were asked to caretake Portland House for February after we finish here in the Daintree.

    For us it is a dream destination - way up Cape York in a spot about 30 minutes North of Lockhart River, 800kms north of Cairns & adjacent to one of Australia's best & unique wildlife locations, the Iron Range National Park. (And Chilli Beach is just a stone's throw away).

    They will fly us up there & back to Cairns 'cos the access roads will be closed & give us the use of their 3 year old Hilux 4wd.

    We'll be living in comfort in one of the Cape's more upmarket accommodations within a tiny community of just 10 houses. Our role, apart from providing security for the property by our presence, is to undertake a twice weekly mail collection from Lockhart River airport & distribution of the mail within our immediate community, far from onerous, this will ensure community contact both in Lockhart River & Portland Roads. Similarly a bit of grass mowing etc in & around the community will no doubt enhance our position as temporary community members. For things to work out so well feels like karma. To have access to Cape York at a time when it is at it's most vibrant & essentially shut off to tourists is a dream come true. We are absolutely stoked! Woohoo!

    Spent the day at the Baw Baw big blokes BBQ, an event to raise funds and awareness for male health and mental issues, 800 blokes in a room with Danny Green and Warrick Capper as guest speakers, no women and all topics of conversation open. Was a bloody ripper day with $200k raised!

    Had dinner at Crown for our 20th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. The young boy had to go with his mama, while I took the eldest for a crash course on how quickly you can can drop a 50.

    Happy that we got away for our annual Licola fishing trip weekend, sad that it was the first year without the man in the hat. But we made sure we cut too much wood and burnt plastic. Missed you, old fella.

    Yep, it makes a great improvement. I've not had it but family members have. You can see a little square on the eyeball sometimes, I'm guessing it's where the laser strikes it???????
