Once the engine was put back together again, it started first time!
While it was idling, only then did Graham realise the alternator had a few bad bearings rumbling. So that had to be serviced as well!
Other less critical things that was also done now:
1) Both rear view mirrors were loose. They work electronically from inside (very fancy for 1993), but were loose from the operating mechanism inside the mirror housing. This was glued together, and work as new.
2) The passenger door electric window did not work anymore. I checked the fuses before and all seemed okay. Only when Graham opened up the door panel did we realise there was no electric motor anymore!! See picture below. Got one fro Dawid.
3) The two pumps for the water spray, front and rear, (rear - also fancy for 1993!) did not work. Graham got them alive again. Not sure how.
4) Being the Petrol model, it actually came out with a factory fitted diff lock. The diff lock works, but the vacuum pipes were hard and brittle, and we could not get the solenoid to work again. This I will still get replaced.
