as for the oil I mentioned - it is probably 2 drop that are on the floor, there is a little bit of oil on the bottom of the transmission (it is not a large amount but it seems to be coming from the split in the transmission case. The clutch area is totally dry of oil
the smell is more of a mix between clutch and electrical. it is not rubber smell, not any kind of rubber I have smelled. I dont claim to have a super smeller nose, so I could definitely be wrong.
what is the easiest way to by pass the lid switch?

The first three are ones I use, the fourth one is used by someone that should NOT be any where near electrical work................... DO NOT be that person, use an insulated 'jumper'....... Okey Dokey ....

Any other suggestions on things to check, or should I consider myself lucky and move on?
