      I have sent some photos over, not sure how much they help. I think once you start fitting what you know the ones left will make sense. Also obviously you can test you have the correct ones connected as you go. I know what a PITA job it is but a new mask will look a lot better.

      thank you so much ,it wasnt my intention to leave it so long ,but as it was inoperable and this "radical" treatment or weldmar was the only option ,so not all my fault sept the pics that was my fault ,anyway there is a what i think is a voltage stabilizer i think it bolts onto speedo ,and a small light with a "S" clip behind l/h switch panel that im not remembering ,anyway thank you so much for your time rgds steve

  6. again thanks!!! i now have a very expensive screwdriver you left behind lol, dont think the pic does justice to the really nice carpet colour you choose,hope you made it home without peeing yourself after all that liquid lol again thank for the help see you soon ill get the info you asked asap again thanks to everyone who has helped me in my darkest hours again thanks

  11. well that good info i didnt realise he sold parts thought that would be cutting his own throat, he offered to rebuild but wasnt sure about the seal and think it was 100+ also i was wondering about a dif advance curve ?? again thx so much
  12. if any one sources the correct "o" ring or a rebuild kit pls pm me with info thx rgds steve
  13. thanks guys all makes sense now and as stated i only have the small plastic piece around the speedo and rev counter, but it was all bent, another question !!! the binnacle was just hooked under the front mounts for the binnacle and two bolt holding it down at the rear is this as par ???
  14. thanks that's all i found ,just a plastic piece around the speedo and rev counter ,my service notes show the picture above ,so i thought the po may have lost it ?? anyway thanks guys ,wonder if i should make something similar to the pic?? cant see that plastic really holding all that weight??also thinking a multi pin plug while im in there would make it easier to reinstall ???
