On the Sunday of the first bank holiday weekend in May I had planned to go for a quick spring evening drive prior to some friends coming over for dinner. Mabel had other ideas and decided not to start at all. Again we could see the bendix was not properly engaging with the starter ring. After a bit of fiddling she did get going but it was clear this was going to be a reoccurring issue. We needed to come up with a plan B before the next trip out!
