1215 :

Thanks for that Info  :028:

The HN2020 ( 20x26x20 ) looks to be for the forward end of the Drag Link,
( which isn't shown on the Parts List as being the "FC" Type ).

Did they have the FC Bearing type for the slightly shorter 20x26x16
used on the rearmost ends of the Drag Link, which are shown on the Parts List to be FC type ?

Thanks,

I didn't use Simply Bearings, but a local supplier. I got both sizes of bearings from then in £full compliment", by just giving the size and specifying FC. When I replaced my shock last year I made a "gaiter" out of an old inner tube which fitted nicely from top to bottom and secured it with a couple of zip ties. This prevents anything getting to the working parts and cannot be seen unless you look for it.

Coconut,

Yes HN2016 is the full compliment  20 x 26 x 16 £12.64,

Not to be put off by the description it says one closed end but this is wrong it is two open ends, this was a mistake on the other description as well but they have altered the other, this may get corrected .... one day!!!


1675,

Great to meet you yesterday, like minded folk, love the Trophy and definitely the quickest colour..... Lunar Silver!!!

Well the fun begins........ at last the lovely DPD man has  delivered a nice heavy box and inside is.......



Only issue he put a new bearing in the bottom  but wrong one  NOT full compliment.
If using Firefox just be aware and CLEAR  about what you want i.e. I did say don't worry I have a bearing!!!

Also they are mega busy (it seems all the time) and not the best to converse with he forgot to call me to notify it needed a new 'rod' (outsourced) so this added to the delay.

Also as it was a bit stone chipped on the coil a bit he offered powder coat.... any colour so RED it is,  pity no one sees it!!!

Must get of this keyboard and start reassembly.... greasy fingers here we come.

Looks very nice - like brand New !

What was the total cost of the refurb in the end ?

Couple of frustrating afternoons trying to get the top (front) wishbone bolt and spacer sleeve out.

Little varmint was fast but perseverance paid off.

Thanks AS EVER to Coconut for his guidance and input as well as 1675 for the good info,
Will be taking 1675 advice and get a stainless spacer knocked up




Would that be item number 28 or 32 on their list or is there a mistake I'm wondering? There's certainly a big difference in price between them. How did you remove it in the end? If it's the sleeve I'm thinking of, there's hardly any of it sticking out to grab hold of.

Obviously there must be an error, that price difference cannot be.

This is all Gary sent me:
