So, I think ive been here before! Having sold all the parts I thought i wouldnt need for the klde I now find myself in the position of needing some of them back.
I started the hunt for a type 9, and it wasnt long before one came up on Gumtree only 20 minutes down the road from work. It didn’t have a gear lever so I was unable to check the mechanism, but it looked clean enough and there didn’t seem to be much end float in the main shaft.
Lets hope i haven’t bought an expensive paper weight!!
I don’t seem to have a picture to show, so I’ll try and take one tomorow and upload it.
