Blower now lukewarm when stationary and expansion tank down another half inch or so (without any more fondling). Fingers crossed that it's sorting itself out.
Yesterday I got bored and cleaned out the CV gaiter, repacked and slapped on a metal tie. Can't pull the tie tight enough by myself - another three hand job, I reckon. Apparently 'proper' clips can only be obtained with new a new gaiter. This would explain why garages always put on cruddy plastic cable ties every MOT. Does no-one sell huuuuge Jubilee clips?
I *think* the gaiter is the only thing between me and an MOT. Will sort out on Monday, together with alternator and inlet manifold/throttle housing gasket.
That just leaves Noel to come round and sort out my tappets...
