I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

RE: Zim,Zambia&Bots in Syncro
Whose bus is that? I remember seeing pics of it here on the forum. I remember the wheels and the custom made snorkel. Brave man to hire out his Syncro for a trip like that! I did laugh though at the amount of time and effort that must have been spent constantly removing and refitting the prop in an effort to save petrol. There is NO fuel consumption gain to be had from doing this as well as putting a little bit more strain on the gearbox.

RE: Zim,Zambia&Bots in Syncro
Hi guys! The one travelling was me. I borrowed the bus from a friend. It was a hell of a drive, I loved it. Nevermind the constant hassles it gave me. 3l V6, leaking like hell...in Zim I changed the oil sump seal in a camp, in South Africa still I changed the valve cover gaskets, the clutch was basically gone, I had to change it between 2 trips (we did 2 trips, I just wrote one article about all), then the fans didn´t want to come on anymore, fuses always melted etc. I was often under the car, but I still loved it.

Driver´s window always falling down, repaired it under watchful lion eyes in the Central Kalahari...and and and...there are lots of stories with this car. But again, I love it.

Unfortunately the owner sold it on, although I told him I would buy it.

But I found another Syncro, I paid a deposit as I am still in Europe, will pick it up in a month´s time.
