OK forget 5 mins. It was off in seconds! That impact wrench is a beast of a machine, it didn't even break a sweat. No heat, no locking of the chain required, it really is very impressive. Hopefully I can find a few hours to try and take the swing arm off. I am worried about the weight on the crate. My parts are still going well on ebay, the tank sold for £100 + P&P this week.
Only upgrade the clutch with good reasons. Max tire torque is lower as the max torque rating of the clutch or read in reverse: the wheel spins quite easy and is an overload protector;) if you are having clutch issues the plates should have worn out earlier before dissassembly.
Looking good Matt. Beer well earned by the look of it.
Good to hear you have been to Halfords. I have found the build thus far, to be an excellent way to fulfil man's basic need for the accumulation of tools and 'things' at any and every opportunity.
The Allen bolts for the engine mounts were so tight that they just bent my Allen keys rather than undoing. I need to find storage for all the bits I have stripped now. So that I can start tidying the garage, again. I can then start with the front suspension build.
Mine is a rally design rack Matt. It should go on with that circlip. But if you think it's fully seated then yes I would remove the bearing and personally take it down on a lathe as I imagine a thinner clip may break.
