Journey back home

Sunday morning, we all stopped in town for a stroll to the pier
Ooops, bit of a problem on Stuart van. We were driving on the M25 and the van started to have some problems. We managed to stop on this magnificent area. We couldn't find a better place to stop. we even have toilets, sandwiches. We also took the opportunity to open the engines lid to cool down the engines.
So time to get dirty. At first it looks like it was the distributor but when we tryed to look for a spark at the end of the leads, they were soaked in oil. It happend that the coil was leaking and all the oil who was supposed to cool the coil was dripping along the leads. So I went to my van and took a spare coil which I carry with me for emergency.
The new coil is in place, Stuart ready to start the engine. A few sec later everything was back on track and the van was ready to go.

Off we go again, back home....
