Cheers Pete - I'm not proposing to do the swap myself (if nothing else, the wiring loom has melted so will also need replacing - not sure if this will have to be rebuilt from scratch), but will definitely pass that on to whichever long suffering mechanic gets the job!
I am considering sending all three engines to Mermaid and requesting they build me one working one and keep the rest...
