Just read this indy. Dont usually take too much notice.

Billyj - Most of them? Pretty sure you will find thats not the case but, well, rather than state what most are thinking reading billyj, i do suggest you go and do a little research. You may find you are a tad wrong there. Enjoy dillusionalism - i hear its a bit on the wild side. :thumb:

Why don't ya just start the 253 and it if goes ok, just use it. It may not actually need a rebuild at all.
