What happens when the gear box is out of action!?......

What happens when the gear box is out of action on a big white rusty van!? well....I had to stop. that is what happens. then I have to lift the bonnet and have a look inside. If you are not a trained mechanic....you have no chance.

Just coming home from helping a customer move from a storage locker to his new flat....fortunately I had already dropped off the customer. ...I got the gears into second......and gingerly drove rusty van back along country roads at 25 miles an hour.....today I was the slow irritating one on the lovely roads on which I would put my foot down into corners......everyone hang on......but not today.

I eventually got home about one hour after I was expected. I was only about ten miles away fortunately.

About two years ago I fixed the gearbox by making a cable and a bit of gigggerypokery with a new clip......to day the cable decided to come away........so ...no gears. No driving of van.
I took the offending clip into the house to show Sally.

Is that it! It is tiny!

Well that is it. And without this tiny thing holding together the gear box on rusty van we ain't go in, anywhere.

So we went no where as it is raining, I have rigged up a light and then well ....it rained. Not fancing being under rusty van in the rain with a self rigged up electric light.
