Looks like it was still a good drive.
I done my vanos seals & shims instead but it's a bit noisy on warm up so gonna replace the spline gearing next.. At least the cold idle jolt has gone now tho :)

Looks like good fun. Sorry I couldn't join you. :cry:

I was trying to follow the Google maps route, but it didn't tie up - I take it you did come over Hardknott, as that looks like Cockley Beck and Wrynose Bottom. And the level crossing is at Staveley - one I have waited at many a time until they bypassed the village.

Hope you all got back safely - it just took me 2 hours to drive home as the M6 was an absolute 'mare.

Cheers R.
