    cheers Welly.... its the front mate..... i ended up giving it to my neighbour to take to his garage, he can get it moving but it just wont free up anymore.... he wacked it in the vice though and hammered it, nothing....so i told him to whip the motor off and i'll buy an ebay/scrappy set and sell the spare motor on the bay
