    i guess its as the saying goes, someone is only going to pay what they want to pay. I didn't even have it offered for sale which is the funniest thing

Fair play to A-Series spares on their honesty over all the issues they have had in-house, I am going to be needing a few of their security bits when mine comes to that stage and will be popping up for a chat.

    Brake and clutch cleaner is my preferred choice. Very cheap and effective but evaporates fast so needs more application on heavier grease

    id take it to a local garage, ask if you could use their solvent bath, had one back at my old job brilliant at releasing all types of grease and oil. Supposedly the one my college had contains a bacteria which destroys / uses the oil.
