Christmas and the Head
27 December 2010
Christmas was wonderful. My daughter Kate and her husband, Pat, put on a delightful day at their house, and with Pat's niece Kiri, my daughter Emma and Adrienne we laughed and talked as we ate and drank, just like families everywhere. I hope yours was as happy.
After a rest on boxing day, and watching the Sydney to Hobart race start on TV, came the day to work on the head, the parts having arrived from the US already. Having done this before, and having cleared blocked sewers with my bare hands and shoveled out a septic tank with my bare shovel, I was keen to get started.
Sparing you the details ...
... 5 hours later it was finished!
I'm not going to spare you the photo, though. This shows the split, worn out leathers on the piston.
