Brake adjustment. Shake down run, that's why I took you along.

Stage 1 of the recovery completed, I'm now at Exeter services waiting for the next truck to relay me back to Dorset!
My first Yellow Taxi was red!
Dave the Recovery driver was a most excellent chap, even bought me a coffee to help pass the time waiting for the next guy!
Relay stage 2!

I do hope that is it something simple like a push rod tube (as found in earlier tale here). Pleased you found a local Aircooled sick bay and hope to know the outcome soon.
Umm - I think this is my third entry on this thread… but for the record; a shattered windscreen near Marseilles:
Here I am again! This time posting for a friend who borrowed a van from another friend. He had two calls to the AA within about 50 miles - the first was a for a burst tyre (the widow maker jack didn’t extend far enough to get the wheel off the ground properly) and this was the second, total gearbox failure (nothing but neutral and not the clutch). I don’t think the owner is on TLB - if you are apologies but at least I’ve saved you a job!
Moral of the story - don’t lend your van, especially to my mate.
