    after on the way back Frome Cumbria last week I had a problem with the starter motor on the van so I have been working on it
    I striped it down and gave it a good clean and service the changed brass bushes as the was a bit of play in them.
    Inspected and had the winding's tested by a electrician friend of mine.
    was thinking new starter motor at firs but just general where and tare.
    hole job for under £30 pound's in clouding new brushes.
    as apposed to £180
    working fine.
    job done
