I spoke to CraigS at the Club meeting the other night. Like so many of us, he is flat out attending to all kinds of matters and situations, plus he has a number of cars on hand that are constantly being worked on. Give him a bit of leeway - he is well on the way to coming good.

I think it should always be remembered that the car is no longer the 'screaming bargain' some of us may think it is - it is obviously none of my business, and maybe I am talking out of order, but the paid out figure would show little change out of $10K. Still cheap, but not dirt cheap - and that's Craig doing the majority of work. Regards. Styria

Not quite, but getting up there ! However, I am now pretty confident that the engine and fuel system are in good order. I fixed the oil leak today and took it for another run. It is going very well - judging by the black tyre marks left behind as I fish-tailed out of an intersection. Now to put all the bits and pieces back together, such as the console, which I had taken apart to get the radio out, but these things are minor, and I am just glad that I don't have to get back into that motor again.

Did you receive the part numbers for the 6.3 Syria ?

Good to hear Craig no rush at all. My only wish is to see the car complete or not when I am allowed over.

Craig yes, thank you very much for that information. I am sorry I hadn't acknowledged the receipt of the information - haven't spent that much time on TK. The PC is in the garage, and it is a cold place. Regards. Styria

No, I'm top dog - when I am allowed to be. I have chosen the garage as my little 'playhouse' - I love music (something not really shared), so it suits me to be holed up in the playhouse listening to all that 'oompah' stuff, and all those romantic music videos that I like so much. Regards. Styria

CraigS, how is your 6.9 going these days? Found this old thread and it looked like quite a comprehensive fuel system rebuild on a lovely car.

The 300b in the background is nice too!

To be honest, I haven't driven it for some time. I start it occasionally. I need to have it repainted at some stage. I have been waiting for that time when prices start increasing. It appears they are in Europe, with 6.3 prices now in the GBP 80 - 120,000 and 6.9's around 30% less. Wish it would happen here, but I guess it will eventually.

I've seen a couple of W123 diesels in this colour and I never really liked it. But somehow it works well on the big 6.9.
