I like to test the skills of the experts here and am very impressed with what you know !! So, they are back. I opened the bonnet on the P38 to check water etc and found myself being stared down by two pairs of eyes. Two Rats had decided to move in because contrary to popular opinion the Rain in Spain does not stay on the plain. They had returned to their popular nesting site against the bulkhead behind the coolant reservoir and conveniently positioned to eat the wires that come past out of the bulkhead. Well I repaired these before and I have not got down to inspect the wiring yet but having jumped in the car and turned on the ignition I get a warning - Gearbox Overheat-check handbook. Obviously the engine had not been run so no overheating possible. So Gilbert and others, what do you think ? Is it just a wire eaten through ?
