Final update on this (I promise!)   Recieved through the post this morning:



So just had to fit it!    Massive thanks to the fellow forum member 'KillingYOUsoftly' for supplying this, you're a true gent!

A comparision between the real and the repro:




I thought that was it, until when I was tidying up I came accross the old dipswitch photocopied sheet that was stapled inside.

A mouse had took a liking to it for a nest which I found in the control panel area:



I wasn't going to bother, but it tell's you which dipswitch bank is A and B.

I printed the same page out of the manual (page 11) but it just looked too new and bright white paper.
SO!  out came the cold tea with teabag to 'age' the paper slightly lol.   I'm starting to wonder if I'm alright in the head at this point(!)



Dipped in the best tea going.. Yorkshire Tea Big smile



Left it for five minutes and then took the hairdryer to it and here we go!



Nicely aged!

Flatened the paper out for an hour and then stuck it in the printer and hoped it wouldn't get jammed..



Perfect! 

and finally in it's new home :)





I'm sad LOL
