Anyone in Kent...?

Post by KevR » Tue Mar 06, 2012 9:24 am

...who could pick some stuff up from Oscar's in Chatham and hold onto it for me for a few weeks? I'd forgotten I'd bought some parts from him (starter, alternators etc - nothing too bulky) and hadn't got round to picking them up. Now he's moving house and understandably wants it shifted beforehand, but it looks like I won't be back in the UK before his move date.

That's brilliant, thanks Brian. I'll pm you with Oscar's address in a minute and we can take it from there.

Well, one of them certainly isn't - I bought it from Oscar ages ago! If the others are yours you're welcome to take them back - Oscar just wanted his cellar cleared ahead of moving so I said I'd find a home for anything he had left over.

I don't want them back, but Brian aka Electrokid does, there should be 3 of them. Brian, are you getting hold of them before they get chucked?

Hopefully nothing's getting chucked....
Brian (AKA Vantman) is picking up all the remaining bits AFAIK.
I haven't had a PM from Electrokid (AKA Brian as well - same one?).
If anyone has a prior claim on the alternators, that's fine by me - I was only concerned to rescue them from possible oblivion.

All this came about because I bought a starter and alternator from Oscar many moons ago, and Oscar recently contacted me to say he could do with me picking them up. I thought (it may have been something I dreamed), that Tim (AKA Roverman) had picked them up for me ages ago and dropped them off in Loughborough. But my memory is so addled from years of cheap rosé that I can't really remember the details of last week let alone months ago...

I'm doing my best Matthew - I'm chatting with Brian (Vantman) re recovering them - I thought the arrangement was - if I could cobble one working one out of the 3 to get that one back to you in fair exchange for the remaining bits (which are for a project I haven't got very far with yet).

But then if you don't need them back then I'm not that fussed either - so I guess it's up to you Kev :-) My project alternator can use any alternator.

OK...
So, as far as I remember I paid for one starter motor and one alternator. I definitely want the starter, but if Electrokid wants all three alternators then that's fine with me - I've got a couple of spares anyway and the extra bits that Oscar's letting me have more than make up for the difference.
Hopefully that way everyone's happy!

That's very good of you Kev - I'll pick up what seems logical - whether that's 2 or 3 (all 3 from Matthew were faulty anyway) and I'll try to get one working and back to you Matthew whether I start with 2 or 3 - I can work with whatever is left :-)
