    It was some smokescreen wasn't it mate? Have they been able to re-open Coventry Airport yet?

    I think they've been given the all clear until I move the car back onto the drive again to get it sorted.


    After a lot of pondering over what could have caused the problem I reckon it was the sheer weight put on the head bolts lifting the gearbox, subframe and all the suspension etc. just by the hooks on the cylinder head.

    The sudden drops caused by the hooks nearly giving way twice wouldnt have helped either...

    Oh well, you live & learn.
