The battery, fuses of the midi variety and some tools were lugged over to the barn this morning.
Fuse fitted, battery lobbed in. Vroom, dieselly running noises ensued. So, apart from the fuse blowing (likely jump lead caused), I would say that there is some electricity leaking somewhere.
I have left the battery disconnected in the engine bay and will try and see if I can get the car over to North London this week at some point.
