Thank you ChrisImage.. I thought it maybe your good-self that came to the rescueImage, No, it's not mineImage, it's a friend of mine, but it seems that the engine number in the car is GF1183702, but that doesn't seem to be a Jensen number does it?.. do you recognize that sort of sequence Chris or understand the number GF1183702 please?Image

Grant, with over 3,000 posts on here isn't it about time you greased Mr.Calver's hand? There may be a few secondhand copies of the first edition available now that the newer and BIGGER version is out there.

Is that actually the book or just a nice picture of proper Jensens? (Those overalls look ‘awfully’ clean Grant, they look like they could do with a good oiling, I always keep mine well-oiled). :D

Hello JohnImage.. I have 3 pairs and wash them everyday in my barn washing machie@60deg after wearing them that dayImage, I wear nutrile gloves on and off all day and still wash my hands at regular intervals John, I've been to seek help and they look at me as if I am a looneyImage, I always promptly leave the roomImage knowing that they are the looneys, I then drew this picture or sketch John to express my feelings of these head doctors >>>
