    Ha Ha, very good, but not that impressive.

    My Dad once recounted a day from his youth, where he needed to change a synchro ring in his Mini gearbox, but he needed the car (his only transport at the time) for work and social activities, so it needed to be done in a day.

    So he started early on a Saturday morning, car stripped, engine out, engine split, gearbox stripped, found offending item.

    Trip to local dealers for part (on a Saturday!!), back, rebuild gearbox, rebuild engine, engine back in, reconnected and ready in time for the pub in the evening.

    That's also without an engine hoist - engine was lifted out (and in) using rope, with him and his brother standing on the wings of the car!!

    Those were the days - Mad fool.

    Hate to say it guys, but to break a world record, it HAS to be verified, so it is a genuine clip

    I was part of a team back in 1994 who broke a world record ladder climb for west midlands fire service, it was a nightmare to prove it was done correctly, with loads of adjudicators to make sure no cheating was going on

    and Roy Castle was VERY against any form of cheating
