Just wrapped up close to 90 minute drive in Nigel. After nearly four years of not driving there are some signs of arthritis in his mechanicals. Building up miles and speeds as things get better. He accelerates and brakes well. Think it took some miles for the auto box to get all the gears back. We'd done a filter and fluid change which always upset the box a little.
Transfer box has a weep in it and we need to sort out why we can't get into low range. Diff lock seems ok.
Overall very happy with progress.

Replaced the rear UJ on the rear prop. Usual story - one cup ran dry, rollers broke up, curtains. Went from good to FUBAR in 30 mies.

Don't get shot in the face when you go pick it up. Man is a surgeon with the shotgun.
