Saturday 18 September. Progress!!

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

With the combined efforts of the Diesel Gurus we have figured that all we need is a new rocker arm and head gasket, which are on order. The mechanic, Marion, was here this morning and carefully checked for any other reasons of the broken rocker arm. And there is agreement that the water most likely was forced in that nasty Friday night. 

It remains dry and hot but there is an overcast now. I sleep under a mosquito net, just like in the tropics and by midnight it cools off enough to crawl into the sleeping bag.
