So, after some coffee and pains aux raisins (yes really) the stress levels had decreased enough to get going again. The traffic miraculously cleared soon after, followed by one of the high points of the trip so far…
Yes! We overtook a Lada!!!
The sun continues to shine, Arthur still looks cool, and we are safely at our hotel by the lake in Valday. Only 220km to do tomorrow to reach Tver then Moscow on Thursday!
So when Chris put the two distributor drives side by side, he thought that the distance between the body and the gear was different. Helen said that this was just an optical illusion. As a primary school teacher she produced (as they do) paper and scissors and proved herself wrong – there was actually a slight difference! The question is, will it be enough to b***** up our investment? And as we now have no spare, a solution from our world-wide support team would be very welcome!
