Is there room for a 3rd
I need help to change the rear brake discs, pads & shoes and cables then reset them.
Yes I know it's an easy job, but I can't get one of the discs off and need extra help I cant use here. Plus I need to replace the cables as I fear I've over stretched the originals :shock:

Rob,
Any chance of assisting me fit a new CB aerial too?
Let me know what I need to buy and I'll get it (unless you have any surplus you want to get rid of (sell)). Could be in the market for a whole new unit if your mate still wants to sell his. Failing that I'll see if I can pick up a brand new unit.

This will be the last chance I get before the annual to fit and test a working CB :shock:

Paul I will bring cable and a soldering Iron, I can fit that for you. I may have already sold the spare CB, that maplin one is pretty cheap but lets try yours first with a new cable. As Andy said maplin is just down the road.

Rob,
Bought the Maplin kit the other day.
Fitted it just need to test it.
Also replaced the aerial cable.
Once I had it all out I think I found the problem :shock:
Will tell you what it was on Saturday.

Do you have a SWR meter?

Cool
If I can get this lot working, then there'll be a job lot of cb equipment at a bargain price for sale on here next week.
Will just need to decide what to do with the brand new stinger aerial and mag mount :roll:

In theory yes. Just depends on how much of a bitch your body lift turns out to be.
If we get all the bolts off first time then we should have plently of time, so get back out there with that wd40 :lol:

Meant to ask. Have you done a body lift before????
I have. I just wondered if you know the sort of job we're taking on and the pitfalls and tricks involved in doing it well.
