It's not as easy as some cars (like say a C900), but still only 30min max. It's usually the brush/regulator pack, which can be bought and replaced as a separate unit (at least it can on my 1987 9k). > Really wanted a 900, but if I could get a solid if rough looking 9k for > that kind of silly money, I would be a fool not to get into it (even > with the extra clutch change hassle). As I said before, 900s are more fun, 9000s are cheaper, smoother, and more practical. Your pick. On the up side, many of the parts from the 9000 would be quite usable on a C900, so after driving it for a while, you could always strip it for parts. -- Grunff
