Around 133,000km, Bonester.

It is starting to use a bit of oil though still runs very well. Exhausts are looking a bit fluffy black.

I have removed all other engine bolts and the upper frame rails.

Pics here....

Trying to get the lock nuts off.....

I used an air (rattle) gun, however, to no avail.

I may have to trailer it to the shop.

I said that and various other things not suitable for children to hear, several times, but it didn't help.

No, but I'm using oil, exhausts are fluffy black, and it seems a good opportunity.

Engine is out.

Not in a rush, Gos.
