    Interestingly enough, Lee himself has transformed from looking a bit like Arnie when he first started this quest to what he looks like now: Darnell.

    I parked Christine up back in September and had a break for a few months due to my work load and the fact that I'd spent so much time tinkering with her last year.
    At that time she'd been so temperamental that I asked Dean to pop by for a good chat.

    I had two options... the first was the unthinkable and not an option.... so she's a keeper and I'll do what ever's needed to get her reliable.

    It's a struggle but I've raised some money and have some savings that I can fall back on but really don't want to do that unless absolutely necessary.

    Dean said he'll help me rebuild the engine and help get to the bottom of her repeated timing issues.
    His newly restored Silver Special will be presented for all to see at a local show on my birthday in July,
    it'd be great to be able to join him then.

    He's also very kindly agreed to start work on the rebuild soon so as to be ready on time.
    He'll do it as soon as a couple of other projects he's working on have been done.
    And also kindly agreed to run the project as a kind of turn key build to help me out financially.

    I'll do any bits as and when I can to help.

    I've started by removing the Alternator, Fuel and Steering Pump, exhaust manifolds, Carbs... etc.
    The radiator is ready to lift out and she's up on jacks all ready to go.

    Here she is:

    Good man, Dean. I hate Doobs hasn't been able to run Christine without trepidation. Sounds like a good move in the right direction!

    i asked before, ,is there any hope of finding a second unit and building that up, , then pull the whatever is in Lees....

    at least you would know what it is before you start

    good plan whatever you decide.......
    Build it yourself, then at least you know it will be right.

    I did have a good 318 that came in my belvy (christine, one day!) but sold it ages ago. Would be great to have the space to just store large parts 'just in case'.
