The motor has just been serviced, and has full service history. It has done approx 400 hours according to the owners calculations, though the guage only shows 280 for some reason. It was started with muffs and certainly sounds fine.
The gearbox was recently rebuilt (as a precaution after 5 years) and found to be fine and re-assembled with new seals.
