You need to replace the rods too. That then gives you the fun job of re-adjusting the roll!

Robin, go on then, how much? your going to make us all sick now im sure :lol:

If your half handy with a welder you could build them back up and grind them back to shape, easy enough to do it just takes time. I built the old blocks back up by plastic welding some more material back in too and they worked fine, ive got them sat by as spares now for the cost of a couple of welding rods.

Very nice indeed, and well done for that price, if only they came up here for that ;)

What is that filler behind the battery infront of the LHM tank?
