So many reactions to your post.
Very glad Achates is active – A60 active in our 60th year!
Embarassed at the indexong on the site – should have been easier for you to find answers. Note to self for winter months.
Sorry to hear about the failure. Not sure this common – others may know better?
And glad you have got it apart.
As to spare parts Ian Pollard is an obvious ‘Go To’ but i fear he has just left the country (nothing to do with you problems…)
Not sure if parts are still around from T12? (Another note to self to pull this all together on the site). Trevor Thompson might be a good person to contact – email via website or numbers/details in Yearbook.
Fingers crossed for a speedy resolution.
