Yes I am in touch with Martin and as you say he is very helpful. My 24v motor is running as I write this, but with the solenoid bypassed. I think I have now fixed the solenoid - it was not making contact inside, so will try it again once the engine room as cooled down. As for the 220v one I need a new starting capacitor which is proving to be difficult to find here in Grenada.
