Wasn't that quick! Don't live miles away - plus we stopped off for some bread and milk on the way home too :lol:
We are off to get the rebuild kit tomorrow from APD, and make a start on it!
You where damned right about the snow!

Oh and the kit - thats just old age creeping in ;)

Hi Mark,

The cars a bit worse for wear really.
I tried that starter motor and it doesn't spin so i'm still putting up with me old one atm.

Before I reveal more bad news, i'd like to know what people think they would do in this scenario! :
Sweeping 60mph left hand bend.
damp road
ambulance car pulls out from behind stationary oncoming traffic with blue lights flashing.
car in from slams brakes on.

What would you do?

I can only dread to think happened Mint, I take it you're ok? :shock: I'd probably go *Aaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhh* slam on the anchors and if possible pull off the road to the left while braking.

Why were the 2 grey cars stationary and why did the red car slam his brakes on??

I'm assuming it's because they thought they were doing the right thing stopping to let the ambulance past. But it makes little sense to me either.
I'm fine, and the shovits still struggling on with the aid of another headlight, some cable ties and a tin of hammerite!

Well APD don't do them any more but gave us a number for a place called 'Past Parts' which should do. They seemed to be shut now so I'll have to wait....

Also checked 'Brakes Int' who list a couple of different MCs and want about £7 for a re-build kit for either.

Which ever one is correct, I'm probably going to buy a couple and see about getting another MC and rebuilding it as a spair/sell-on item.

All this means that the poor Shove-it will laid up for a while until I get the kit and the chance to sort it out :(

Oh, and a side note.....Dizzy cap and rotor arm for the Honda just set me back £35 :roll:
