result - all working again!!

The design masterpiece that is the positive battery connection - a plastic/metal frankenstein - was simply not making good contact - i suspect what happened is on the drive it got some vibration, and then when it went to start again (ie high current draw) it was simply too much resistance and went dead...

So, after taking off and cleaning up terminals and re-connecting and tightening up the bolts really well, all is well again...

Thanks for replies anyway, cheers
