    i guess i am a little late but you can buy aircraft paint stripper from auto parts stores. comes in an aerosol can or brush on. that would have been handy for paint on bolts, etc. looks like it came out pretty nice anywy.

    I was wondering if you could help me out. I don't manage to find the belt diagram of the ransomes that you show (= xm4805?). Of the smaller belt on the left, do you happen to know the belt number? Thanks. Marc
