Terry progress!!!

Oooh!!!! Exciting news people!!!! Took my Terrier frame to the local tractor fixing man, he hummed and haaa'd and did that sucking air through teeth thing, said he wouldn't be able to do it today so I left it with him. 20mins later, got a text saying it was ready for collection. A simple fix, weld a nut on the top and undo it. Bingo. PS, must learn to weld. Seems to be a multi-use skill for farm yard and bike building alike.

Great news! Easy when you know how, hope the rest of the rebuild goes smoothly :-)

Ahhhh, the old weld the nut on the broken part trick....yep, welding equipment and skills could come in handy round the farm and cycle shop there. That was one we used a lot for broken off exhaust studs on Hondas and Kawas at the shop I wrenched at.
Also handy to have a skilled tractor-man around too. You should see if there are any welding courses around your area.

There's a technical college not too far away, I looked into welding courses a few years ago but things (funding) have probably changed since then.

You have no idea how frustrating this plunger thing has been (ok, you probably do!) - and its also quite frustrating that it only took someone 20mins to fix it, but at least its off and if I can remember what the next stage is, it can now start to take place...that is, if the bits go back on the 4x4 as they should, this weekend...fingers crossed...
