    Try this chap ...

    I spoke to Ian at this place:

    about_124_works

    He seems very enthusiastic about 124s and manual boxes. A very nice chap also. He is a long way up north, however.

    thanks

    Hi, and thanks Ray, i will give him a tinkle.

    i am in Central bonny (today !) Scotland so his local should not be a major issue.
    Any other input from members re my issues will be very welcome.

    Thanks again, cheers
