Here it is

T15 bit to remove the screw from the top of the cyclone

Very nice! That brushroll does look nearly dead, but easy enough to swap over whenever!

A little hack I do is to not put the cyclone release valves back in and cut some insulation tape to stick over them within the square moulding. Takes a few bits and a few minutes, but it really improves the suction! Valves can be put back in whenever for originality.

Yep. I'm going to do that for the both of them. Bye the way I've got a purple cable for that DC01 Dejstill

Lovely! I want a DC01 now, lol. My favourite is the VERY latest DC01, as I grew up with that one ;D YDK motor like your one, red cyclone stickers and the current Dyson logo. Everybody knew how to maintain a Dc01 back in the day :) I hate fitting a hose to one of these though, so stubborn
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I think my Nan's is a late one as well with the first swivel  soleplate. Our one looked exactly the same as that but with a fixed sole plate. I like the motor in our hoover.  The suction without the release valves been taken out and covered is unreal. I wonder what it is going to be like with them covered!  :coffee:

I noticed that if you cover the DC04 release valve with sellotape it has better suction too :)

PS I like that carpet, it brings back memories of the rental house we have, that was the same carpet there I think back in 2007
