Going in for op on my right hand/wrist tomorrow morning, so have decided to Sorn the surf for the time being as I'm not going to be able to use it for at least 2 months :(

By the time I'm able to start doing stuff again I'll have a list of jobs to complete starting with replacement of rear wheel bearing/shafts (cheers Bio), just in time for it's MOT

:whistle: Cheers fella's, I'm on the look out for a left handed mouse at moment :D

BigBobE, I believe they can be done with an angle grinder and big hammer and chisel :) although your best bet would be to find a local garage with a large press.

I'm fortunate enough to have acquired some 2nd hand one's,  prefitted to the shafts with back plates and brakes fittted, aren't I Ian  :whistle:

you need a hydrolic press .......and it is possible to bend the back plate , when we did it we bored out one of the old collets to assist pressing it all back together
