A week or so ago I had a call out of blue from a guy who was working on a Rolls-Royce 20/25 for a friend. An internet search for a solution to his engine problem had turned up this here blog. After a conversation that confirmed his fears he had the owner contact me directly with a view to possiblly getting it fixed. A subsequent workshop visit allowed the owner to see the kind of work I do and this led to his car being dropped off today. Some enthusiastic home repairs have led to a stripped thread in the aluminium crankcase, the head is already off but I'll need to remove the sump, pistons & block to get at it. Depending what I find the crankcase might be able to stay in the car, we shall see.
