Re: 170 conversion long to standard shaft

I just cut the same amount off everything, only issue is if drive tube has a reduced diameter where it goes into gearbox, cant remember on 170.

Re: Adrian Dale

I am sorry to hear that Adrians health has worsened. I met him once on one of the Thames events, nice guy.
He was living life to the full, and was only hindered by his health, would have loved to done the long Marston run with him.
Thanks for letting us know Jeremy.

Re: HSD12704.L

Weld a thick washer on the broken bolt, then weld a nut to the washer, that will get it out.
