A good friend who owns a Lagonda V12 reported to me recently that he is having to strip down and reassemble the engine which had been worked on by a professional engine rebuilder. The number of bolts, studs, nuts and washers that had been replaced incorrectly was simply amazing. There is a simple rule when tasking a mechanism apart. I am sure it doesn’t need explaining here! The Patriot team now recognise the saying, if you want a job well done do it yourself!
