The plan (as far as there is one) is: Get the motor runningDrive it about for a bit to see if 1st and reverse gear miraculously reappearIf I need to take the transmission apart to get the gears back then I suppose the surface rust on the bits under the seat would have to go but I do like the 'patina', I do want a vertical exhaust stack though I had the starter solenoid apart today to investage the lack of clicking when energised, it was seized solid, I could have freed it off but I snapped a bit off the case dismantling it. It may live again. I think that this is going to be typical of the work that needs doing, cleaning up all the electrical contacts and remaking the butchered wiring loom.. Thanks devonionredneck for the tip abut the points. I'll try to take more pictures at the weekend.
