    Does it take longer in Winter? 8-(

    Something is amiss with the drive gear, so it's time to pull the thing
    off. Which the manual reckons is 3 hours and a very helpful post on
    Brickboard claims a record of 2 hours.

    So far I feel like I've been under there a month, I can't find an
    exchange starter until the New Year and my knuckles are ice cubes.

    I now have my exchange starter -- Which is a good 2 inches shorter
    than the original. Mounting flange seems the same.

    Has starter design improved radically over the last decade, such that
    a smaller motor will now do the job? Will it work? Will it work in
    the UK, but maybe not in a Swedish Winter? Am I going to set a new
    record for re-installation time, as it should now be a lot easier to
    wiggle it back into place. :cool:
