Head Gasket

Tom – Got into a bit of trouble yesterday when our head gasket blew. Literally rolled into a hotel car park and changed it last night behind the back of the hotel. I’m the monkey in Blue and Mike Oliver is the consultant with the torch. It seems to work this morning but we will have to see when we hit the road

  1. Incredible stuff. You’re like the Leicester City of the car world. You need to start making some enigmatic and incomprehensible video broadcasts x

  4. Tough luck Tom. Fingers crossed for the next stages. If it’s any consolation, our ancient VW Combi (no comparison mind you) did the self-same thing as we reached the same mileage, less than 2 weeks out of Sidney. We went right round Australia (one year in all) on the replacement with no further ado except a rear wheel rolling gently past us as we drove into Darwin, nuts shaken off by the rough terrain! Much love to all – glad Mike and Sal are with you now.
