    Well I thought I had a deal on one earlier this summer and was compiling some research. Deal on hold due to paperwork issues. I found this blog extremely helpful and encouraging.

    yes, i have had a look at this and found it very interesting, luckily mine does not need restoring just a good clean and some fresh fluids as it has just over a 1000 miles on the clock.

    hi sketch congrats, nice buy, re oils, gearbox 20/50 is fine,premix 25/1 should be fine with synthetic you should be ok at 30/1, although a mechanic i know doesnt recommend synth for older engines !
