Title: My Head Gasket's Gone!

Just thought I'd let you know. Don't expect any sympathy. Don't expect any replies. Laugh if you want. Share a tear if you want. Just thought I'd share the news amongst you.  I'll go now.

Well you have my sympathy - my radiator blew up coming home from Wales. 8 hours on 3 RAC low loaders from Symonds Yat.

Sorry, is a 'head gasket' something that you wear over your ears to stop you hearing people talking about set lists??  ???

My head gasket's fine I think, but the 4th spark plug hole thing was getting flooded with water from my washer bottle. 

Pretty wild eh?  Got it sorted for ?80 instead of the garage predicted ?340 plus everything predicted by the garage.

This forum is soooo much more advanced than the previous one.

Mark D - Nice reply. LMFAO - git  ;D ;D ;D

MBB - reminds me of a few years ago when the then Mrs W took her car to the Renault main dealer, they wired up their computer wizz bang wollop thing, then quoted (can't recall exact figures) about ?300 maybe more, for repairs whatever they were. I got a new distributor cap and it was sorted for about ?40 or whatever!!

Currently watching Live at Monmouth DVD.....George is awesome

... from Symonds Yat.

Nice place to break down, stunning views of the Perregrines, and a nice pint of "Dorothy Goodbody" in the Saracens Head..
