By 08:30 this morning, the phone call informing Bob the new starter motor had arrived came.
Like a rocket, off Bob scampered, collected it and, upon his return, promptly installed the new part.
It was at this point in time that he discovered the true source of the fault: a faulty soldered connector in the main starter supply cable. This also explained the burnt – out starter motor winding.
Having to repair the soldered connection took some time, so the decision was made to defer our departure for Aurich until Tuesday morning.
