Count your blessings

It is nearly two weeks since our engine problems started. Each day I wake to a nightmare. Putting the experience down on paper and in the blog helps me come to terms with the situation. We are in the right place (1) now and most days have been warm n sunny (2). Two weekends have got in the way of progress so we wait with mains power to keep the other systems going (3).
Flowers on the roof are cheering and colourful (4) 

Hindsight is a wonderful concept, ‘if only’ and ‘what if’ is pointless to consider. The road to discovery will be a maze of wrong turnings. What went wrong and why are questions that get answered in time. It was definitely a fuel problem. Air getting in? Heaters? Water? Diesel bug? It has been reported that all the injectors were damaged by water. Whatever it was the engine never actually stopped, just ran rough and smoked. While waiting for the injectors to come back we wonder what else may have gone wrong.
It looks like the public is being told about BW/Trust. A hat is about to be passed round asking for money from us all!
