untitled story

Had fun and games ove the weekend.
took the turbo to himley hall. no problems on the way there, however about 2 miles from home a pipe blew off the oil cooler and proceeded to emply the entire contents of the sump all over the under side of the car, front brake discs tyres etc and was empty in 500 yards.

luckily i spotted it prety much straight away (only doing about 35mph) and de clutched and coasted to a safe place to stop and it was still running so there was still fuel in the carb even though the fuel pump had stopped.
i was passing a Ford dealer at the time so went there to try and get oil after i re attached the pipe. unfortunately they were unable to get to their parts dept do a nice sales man drove me to a near by petrol station and back to the car.
doesnt seem to be any the worst for the moment, but will keep an eye on it.
need to get new pads though as they got well coverd with oil.
At least it wont rust for a while.
