Rear axle oil seal

When I checked the brakes I found that on the OSR the shoes were contaminated with diff oil. This is very bad - the seals have gone allowing the grease to be "washed"away.

Stub axle looks fine, but those axle bolts were a pain to remove.

Parts now soaking in some cleaner while I wait for some parts to arrive.

Rear Shocks

Bit of tree lugging, tip running and some horrible Oxfordshire roads and both rear shocks have emptied their oil over the wheels and rear springs.

New ones on order...

Found some snow

Lots of snow this week.

Went to the Ridgeway on Saturday and this is what it looked like!

Where's the snow?

Ropes ready and levels checked on the Stage 1. 

Wood cut and stored.

Bring on the Arctic snow.


Spend yesterday at WOSC clearing drainage ditches. 

Took the Stage 1 and it made light work of dragging tress out of the 8 ft ditch to be cut up.
