Are there any rules relating to generating a 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 within a backbone area.
As then a BB router would become an ASBR?
Also, is it possible to use a redist static to acheive the same result. On testing I cant seem to acheive that.
Many thx indeed,
router ospf 10
network 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 area 0
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.192.67.2

I can't think of a good reason why a core router couldn't be an ASBR and inject the default route in the ospf domain. I have seen many customer doing it.
The only way to inject the default route in ospf is to use the "default-information originate" statement. The redistribute static won't do it.
Hope this helps,
