Malcolm,

Just the one, strong with just a splash of milk and a couple of sugars. It would be nice to work out some kind of flotation device to get it across the river otherwise it'll cost a couple of quid to ship it over the bridge.

Just let me know when and where and i'll gladly bring it down on the final leg of it's journey.
I would hope that it will fit in the back of a Mondeo hatchback but I'll take my roofbars just in case.

You will now observe, if you look closely, that the M word that caused Malcolm some concern has indeed been censored :lol:

Chaps I am really sorry !!!

I thought this post was something to do with parts for a relay van or something, so have completely ignored it...


:twisted: :oops:

i am happy to help.. could have saved a fortune for someone in france last week!

I am occasionally all the way to Newcastle (dad) and sometimes to be found on route to Taunton (mum)

I may have to go Exeter soonish too..

:)

will try and read back through post when I have some time..

Tun Wells is where I am to be found... well , near there..

Whilst i am still able to deliver parts some of which can be large as i have use of a lorry i am unable to deliver cars as previously stated this is due to the fact that the 2 beaver tail lorries we have the ramp angles are too steep even for the mighty Xantia on high setting to avoid bottoming out once the front gets on the lorry bed :cry: :cry: :cry:

This minor fact was discovered whilst trying to get my 1.9td to work to have some work done on its aux belt and rollers hence i needed to borrow a trailer my apologies for the earlier inaccurate offer of such a service :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

P.S. I forgot to add.
My parents are in Newcastle, and my kids in Edinburgh, so if anything needs picking up/dropping off between Lincoln & Edinburgh via the A1 i may be able to help, i've also got a set of roof bars for any bulky items.

John,

I have a door to run down to Malcolm in St. Leonards very soon and that means I'll be passing your door, practically :D

So, if anyone can get said engine to near me, then the job's a good 'un. The engine can travel down with me.

My visa for Yorkshire has expired. It was revoked when I applied for my Geordie one :lol:
