Workshop News

Following Kirkbride some teams have been busy repairing damage. Simply Red have been repairing gearbox problems. John was a bit heavy on the gear lever at the end of his run , trying to get it out of gear, and bend the quadrant shaft. That's all repaired now, they found that the engine problem was a damaged injector pump element , so Chris Wilkinson is working his magic, and John hopes to fire up the tractor again this weekend.
Alistair Parkinson is still smiling like the cat who got all the cream, after his first full pull on Red Mist at Kirkbride. The misfire he had in Sunday's pull off was due to a broken injector pipe, so they have fitted an old set from Simply Red, and Alistair is now looking forward to his home pull at Gt. Eccleston.
