Which way are you going to this Nigel? Were both coming from same direction, do you fancy meeting to lift share? Or are you likely staying over that way?

Sorry everyone, my reliable german daily has voided itself of engine coolant on start up to drive to the meet due to radiator outlet pipe, and I will not be able to make this evening. Perhaps i should start running the R3 alone and supplement additional fuel costs from the sale of the merc.

Appears to be a hose connection, the lower part of the radiator upper large return or flow hose. Where it connects to the block of the engine. Its the supposed self sealing coupling with an o ring you push fit. Should be easy enough to change fingers crossed.
