Get more smiles per miles
Today I sorted out the insurance and paid for a years tax so I can start using the truck in the morning for my run to work. I thought that as I would be on the road 3am I would check all the lights ETC so I know its good to go. While doing this I left it running to make sure not to flatten the battery and after a short time I found it was leaking water! Now I am thinking I better see how much water in the radiator and when I took off the rad cap found it full of oil. I must say I have had better days but best to find it now while its still running good, better than blowing it up on my 30 mile trip to work in morning. I will give some updates after I have had it looked at.
After work today I took another look at the L200 to see where the water leak was coming from and found a small hole in the top radiator hose so have a now one on order. Looked again at the oil in the water and I don't think there is loads in there, maybe a cap full but this still needs to be investigated to see where it is coming from. The oil in the engine is clean and at the right point on the dip stick.
I had a chat with the guy I got the truck from today "he has been away" and he said to get the repair done and if it is head / gasket to get new water pump and full set of belts done same time and he will go halves with the total cost of the repair. Sounds fair to me, Hope to get it looked at early next week.
Got my Mitsubishi L200 back from the garage today with its new head ETC fitted. In total it came to £1020 and the guy I got it from was true to his word and paid half the total bill. At the same time I had the EGR blanked off. Just fitted the new roll bar that I got with the roller cover, This new roll bar has a bigger space between the front and back hoop to install my stack exhaust

Well it all came to a end today on my way home from work. Sitting in traffic on the dual carriagewayy some old fart hit me in the rear doing around 50-60mph and pushed me into the truck in front!
And the old git that did all the damage
