Thanks Richard, I have had a go using the m2.5 HT cap heads. Also added the rest of the final drive details. When you read the photo text you may wonder why I mentioned using a chainsaw flat file on the HT buttons, well an ordinary file although hard would be damaged by the hard high tensile screws, the chainsaw file is mega hard and cuts the material with ease! Worth keeping one in your tool box 8)
No worries Phil; just thought I'd offer it up whilst the capability is available. Thanks for the info also, Am learning new stuff everyday although I think the grey matter may explode soon due to info overload :shock: but keep it coming whatever happens :lol:

Don't be surprised to receive a hefty bill from your apprentice.

Something like "the house needs redoing"!!!

Sorry Phil, you really should supply your work force with proper PPE ( personel protective equipment). Latex gloves would have been a nice touch.

Love the added details, I do like the towing plate, axel extentions, nice little reminders. 8)

It's Black and Decker work mate time for me now starting Saturday.

Sadly, I can only depend on a few minions to help me out. :roll:
