so the new gearbox is patchy, and you're sending the old one off for rebuild, then?

New gearbox is ok, but yeah, that's the plan

Performed said oil change.

Swapped out the gear knob for one that doesn't fall off.

Washed it, rain-x'd the windscreens, took it to the meet. Somehow managed to get it dirty in that time...

 

I also think I may have developed an exhaust leak somewhere

Replaced PS belt, alternator belt, alternator adjuster bracket, PS adjuster nut, 2 of the 3 temp sensors in the thermostat.

Seems to run better now, but requires more testing.
