well, why did you not offer the parts here first to get a feel for the market ?

I think I'll go have a lie down. All this cynicism has worn me out.

I think the point originally made is that what most of us need, is objective, helpful advice to specific questions and I suppose that when bombarded with the same questions day in day out a certain tired automatism kicks in.
It is possible, and it is completely understood by all of the fellows above including TTR, that you can hunt about to find original or S/H parts and in my experience they are all ok with that as that is what classic car ownership involves.
Having bought a very sketchy project, I'm trying to find the most original (S/H) parts which are appropriate and serviceable rather than to adopt "open cheque book" the approach that obviously some customers are able to do.
