Since the weather was absolutely bucketting it down, I decided to begin going through my latestest purchase prior to Chris's visit tomorrow.
The previous owner was an elderly lady who was very short apparently and thus modified the hydro pedals for ease of driving! On one side there was a block of wood on the right footrest and on the left was a spring loaded metal plate bolted to the floor. When the LF arrived on Wednesday, I sprayed the offending items with WD40 which worked a treat this morning. Within. Half an hour both offending items were in the bin. Photos of before and after.
I also quickly checked the air filter to see how dirty it was. The photo said it all..
The tyres are fairly new which is an encouraging sign.
