    A terrific little machine, but not everybody knows about them. Good if you you're buying one, not so much if you're selling, obviously.

    Sounds about right, but for the time being I think I'll 'leave well-enough alone'.

    It's not bypassed, not at the switch anyway. I'll check. If I pull a lead off the switch while it's running, the machine should stop.

    I will check that. Looking at the notation for the reversing lever, the present direction of rotation could be correct or incorrect. If the oil pump has a preference, I'd better make sure. Thanks :)

    It's levelled in that last pic, all done. Custom cut wedges and shims and a HF 2-ton floor jack did the trick.
