Re: Land Rover Rustorashun

Indeed and nobody feels more stupid than I over the whole sorry debacle, 10 days on it looks like a squashed baked potato but is healing up :lol: ! anyway onwards and upwards.

Re: Land Rover Rustorashun

Hang on, a press on fucking swivel bearings? What sort of lunatics are they? From memory they are just seated in place & various thicknesses of spacer fitted under the top pin to get the correct swivel pre-load.
