Day 5: 9:40AMIt seems the mechanics last night done a great job. They replaced the carburettor and took the whole engine apart for a clean at a cost of only 300 rupees for 2 mechanics for pretty much the whole night and on New Year's Eve!
We're taking it pretty eaasy at the moment and stopping occasionally to give the engine a bit of a break as the mechanic advised and I think that means that we are trailing behind the other teams by at least half a day, although for a change we are finally making steady progress.
I can't imagine that the other teams have been problem-free so we may have a chance to salvage something from this.
We're on extra-paranoid petrol watch at every petrol fill-up now though - we don't really need any more crap in our engine.
