Yes, that's it, Leon - maybe think cars? I's a lovely puzzle once you've worked it out, although for the second step you need to own a Brewers or use the link the out-of-date one given on the Wikipedia web page for Brewers (which is a damned sight easier to search if you pull up the HTML version).

I'm having trouble finding the pairs. Are all the them in Brewers under one heading or are they scattered throughout the book?

Six pairs are together in one heading (where you might expect). Seventh has its own (alphabetical) entry.

Can anyone push me in the right direction for the treatment of the last eight words. I now have most (but not all) of the pairs. One of the pairs seems to contain an extra word - is that important?

Scores across six for two,down ten for one.
Replace the letters "one" in 17 down "toned" by the letters "ten". Replace the letters "two" reading across from the final letter of 16 across "ret" by the letters "six".

Thanks Leon and krauton. I think I'm gradually getting better with these crosswords but I still find them really hard. The final part always seems to defeat me!
