i think the problem was at the T handle end as the catch itself is in pristine condition with no rust at all. The cable at the handle was a bit rusty so I have dosed that in WD 40, needless to say the engine lid is going to remain propped open for now.

Thanks for all your suggestions on how to solve my problem.
Oh yeah baby!!!! I know exactly how you felt when the lid popped up.....it caused me to "pop" another beer to celebrate!

After getting everything straightened out and adjusted afterwards, I had to take a bunch of tranquilzers before shutting the lid again.
