It'll be with the 1/2lb ballpein hammer then... Still not found that beast, hope I didnt button it up with the cam belt when I put the covers on :shock: either that or it's floating about the bash plate.
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Aha!
That answers my question then, about who might be able to press new things. We should see about getting him a diff plate for testing purposes if that's the case.
