First Apologies for the lack of any updates recently, with the cars being out of traffic for essential repairs, your blog writer and webmaster have both been out of action recovering from operations also.
1st August work.
Ben, Pete and Steve called a work day to exchange the fan and drive on No2 engine on 50933.Working in such a restricted space Pete and Ben had removed the old fan and had started to replace with one in much better condition. The bearings on the old one must have collapsed because the fan blades had started to carve their way into the housing surrounding the moving fan. This writer had to leave early so did not record what took place later in the day. A running check later revealed another defect on the car which will be investigated on Friday next.
