  1. I can't help with mechanics down your way, but have a look on the bay or breakers yards to price a replacement engine. If you can't fit it, factor the cost to have it changed. Does that match any discount from the dealer? Sometimes it's better to walk away
  2. Clean the tank as well if that has been lying I assume there will be rust inside. I've used a length of light chain, but others use nuts and bolts or small stones. Fit an inline fuel filter as well

  5. Not just ebay. I was looking for a 25ml bottle of touch up paint from a well known supplier. £7.50....Not bad thinks I, but another £7.50 pnp

  12. Banjos will be standard and you can get braided lines made up to suit. Search Google for the various suppliers If you go on the Goodrich site you can buy kit to make your own.
