So, I've ordered a new control valve and understand I'll probably have to take a nibble out of the battery plate to fit it. Any a...

Sounds good to me. Somewhere in the forest might be good and there are a few more owners out that direction that might join us then? Otherwise I'll have a think about pubs on the edges of town. Hummm I've lived in Southampton long enough to decode the thread title, but perhaps a new one with plain E...
