    Did this make a squeaking noise? I replaced the clutch and release bearing on mine when I first got it. It wouldn't drive in 3rd when I got it and I can't remember if it squeaked before. As you say the noise goes away with a slight press of the clutch?

    Went out to tension my winch rope today and she didnt turn. Worked out it was the motor and when I stripped it down there was a lot of rusty sludge in there. Anyone have an ideas on the best way to rectify this mess? Worst part is I have yet to use it in anger!

    Depends how bad the corrosion is and what parts have actually corroded. I rescued a starter motor many years ago from similar circumstances using some alloy wheel cleaner which is very mildly acidic and did a pretty good job of removing the sludge and rust staining. When it’s cleaned out and completely dry I would check the electrical integrity of the windings as well as making sure the whole thing is structurally sound with no bearing damage etc.

    Snorkel and headlight cowls. Snorkel was a right PITA to fit.

    Re painted the roof rack, wheels and sliders on the 80, had a little shuffle around in the boot.

    Spent a couple of hours this morning giving the Beemer a wash and polish. Nice bit of stress relief.

    Liking the fallout remover I've started to use, called aliens blood. Sprays on bright green and turns purple as it dissolves the brake dust etc, ph neutral so doesn't strip wax etc

    I always put a large cloth on the windshield when the bare wiper arms are tensioned like that.

    I've never broken a windshield but I'm sort of paranoid :doh:.
