    Thanks for your advice. It gives every symptom of what you have described. As for the VIN it is on the A pillar and when we rolled it off the truck it is too close to the wall to open the door to read. I couldn't even get a mirror in to try and read it that way. I do however have a number that appears in a "gap" in the dash down near the bottom of the windscreen.

    That number is VF 36 DXFVJ 2113 1389.

    I will be ringing the dealer in a moment or two to see if he will give me the details so I can fiddle along from there. I will also price a starter from him. Problem is he is 220km away so it is not always easy.

    Will email you after I have spoken with them.

    At least I now have an excuse to use the 203 every day.

    Peter J (Flash) Flanagan

    PS do you know the Torpies?

    Roland liked post by Dano On thread : French pressings for rusty 203s
    Ghee, for that price I'd be happy to buy them, especially if they were a correct fit on first fitting. Or maybe, I'm just getting soft as I get older. They would save a lot of time and heart ache.

    Find the nearest mall/Bunnings/similar with underground parking. You might be lucky and find a power outlet as well if you need one. Do you intend to drive it home?

    Roland liked post by Demannu On thread : 505 Wheels
    Being 390mm TRX rims, their value is aligned to the value of scrap aluminum. However, a glimmer of hope for you: The centre caps, if in good condition, might get $5-10 each.
