So getting back into things Del decided it was time to do the engine. His arm was still hurting but he felt he could do it..
We were running out of time as we wanted to fix it whilst still on shoreline, and a cold snap was due over the next few days..
The job was to change the gearbox oil cooler and also a pipe which had rubbed through on the gearbox linkage.. This was hopefully going to stop the oil going into the engine coolant and stop Derwent6 leaking coolant when it was freezing conditions..
So it was covers off and get your hands dirty. The gearbox oil cooler came off a lot easier than anticipated but it was a very tight fit to remove the pipes.
Then the gearbox oil will be changed, antifreeze strength checked again and all the spilt water removed.. Just run out of light!
