So easily sorted and ready to hit the road again :D Hopefully not exceeding 60mph Peter :wave: :lol: Great when an issue is a simple fix Peter and thanks to the simplicity of the Pinto made even easier. On modern engines a 'fix" might be easy.....until you find you cant get to it without remov...

Nice ...
