Newer engine being fitted next Monday. Came out of a 2012 with 12K miles. Hardly run in.
Should outlive the car!

After the expense there will be no change of jeep. I'll run her into the ground first (or it will run me!!)

Might change tack and upgrade the better-half's car so it can tow the boat on the flat... haven't broken that to her yet

Now to get the work done in time for lifting the boat from Donegal to get to Dun Laoghaire by the time the guys get over from Carnarvon.

Thanks for all the sound advice guys - - and thanks for the un-sound bits too

(See thread in Tow Cars under HELP!)

So ..... if things go to plan ... back from Dublin on Thursday. Pick the car up and head to Donegal. Pick up the boat and bring her to Dun Laoghaire for Friday night / Saturday morning. Heres hoping .......
