    Had a beauty tonight

    that was after an hour of f-ing with the retaining clip that kept falling out and a gap that my hand doesn't really fit in

    I've got one from a week or so ago.

    Replacing the dizzy; I bought a fangle new dizzy clamp.

    I thought it will be easier getting the stud in without the dizzy in place - reaching around with limited space, just as I was thinking "I better be careful not to . . . . FK!" - before I finished my thought I dropped the stud down the dizzy hole into the engine!

    I had considered that at best the manifold might be coming off, at worst the engine would be coming out!

    Fortunately after a bit of stuffing around with a 'reachy claw grabby thing' I was able to get hold of the stud (and not lose it further into the depths of the engine) - crisis averted.

    2 seconds of thinking will save 20 minutes of swearing and doing! Next time I'll shove a rag in the hole - idiot!
