Good news at last! The engine is complete and now needs some serious miles under its belt BEFORE we head off on the road to Sydney. A rebuilt engine needs to be ‘driven in’ and then re-tuned and given several oil changes. Hopefully we should be able to do about 2000 miles in the van before July, thus ensuring that the engine is in perfect working order before we leave. During this time we will be careful to keep the engine revolutions below 3000rpm in order that no stress is put on the motor.
The van will now complete an MOT and be taxed. Action pictures to follow.
