It's been a terrible time these past weeks during which I've completely lost my mojo but visits to Craig's man cave for a couple of "garage nights" and Curbs on Sunday have restored my resolve to carry on somewhat.
A few days ago the brakes started sticking on slightly so the opportunity was taken to exchange the servo for the known good one. Seems ok.

Keep on keeping on Brian. Post your minor garage conquests & troubles on the forum & we'll give you abuse / encouragement as appropriate to egg you along.

It’s actually pleasing to hear that you’ve found some good use for Craig! Well done.

The rack has developed a bit of play at the pinion/rack so I've obtained a spare and plan to replace/repair the original. I also picked up a spare instrument panel to replace my cracked, twisted, life-expired one.

Changed the rack but worse than the one I took off. I'm dismantling both spares and will have the wear in the "wheels straight ahead" position taken out by centre grinding a few thou off the wearing block area. Good enough to get another years MOT! Game on fer this season!

I’ve got an apparently good one taking up space in my garage (came from Luke) if you want another one to try?

Thanks for that Phil but keep hold of it for now and let me have a go at repairing/improving the spares I've got. I'll let yer know how clever/dumb I am at it!
