    My problem is I start out with ‘reasonable’ sized measures and then end up using pint glasses. It’s bloomin lovely stuff.

    I don't bother much with rugby 7's so 5 in the pitch made me wonder. I know the pitch is smaller.
    Never heard of Freddie Mills. I'll google him though. :)

    Dismantled the swivel today without too much hassle, the bottom pin bolt is M8X30.
    Already ordered new bolts to go with the pin kit.
    The bottom bearing,the cage in which the rollers fit was bent, it might have happened when I was crossing a river at work last week and hit some underwater boulders that had been washed down in a spate.

    That must've made a hell of a bang.

    It was one of several bangs ! The landy is off road every day from July until Febuary up mountain tracks.
    It does take a pounding, my colleagues 09 plate Hilux snapped its chassis just in front of its tow bar mount leaving the rear bumper and part of the chassis still connected to the Argo and trailer as he carried on driving !!!

    I got all the parts from Craddocks, whenever I have tried phoning Gemm the phone rings out.
