No, I talked myself out of it, then spent all evening kicking myself as the Monrotiller started playing up. It only made £200 which I thought was a good price and it was literally just along the road. Oh well, on the upside, today I found a really usefull chap called Paul at Meetens
the small engine people who had on the shelf all the bits to replace everything except the body of the old Villiers carb on the Monrotiller. It cost me 20 quid - result, it ran quite nicely too until I ran out of juice.
Field test on the new plot tomorrow.
PS watching another one, an ISEKI on e-bay now.
Update - no I'm not, it finished 2 days ago and I missed it, doh.
