SO42 handle and catch wanted

Need a handle and catch for the drawer in the coolbox unit on my SO42. Button on the right please. Don't need the rod or the latch plate and they don't have to be perfect. Cheers

Re: Non starter..no spark

I'm assuming you have checked that the points gap is OK? Could be the coil but unlikely. Try replacing points as a first step.

Hmmm, I would have assumed you had already seen that during your comprehensive pre- purchase inspection. Hope you had a good summer!
No - never looked at the speedo Dan! Just the rusty bits and the good interior. Still summer here! Will be at Busfest.

Re: Front wheel bearings

Hi Jim I tighten them up as 'per book' with no wobble on the wheel. Following a run, there is considerable wheel wobble (by gripping top and bottom of raised wheel) and I go through the process again. Which book would that be then?
