Sounds like the best option is fit a new stub shaft. Then it'll be back to the OG strength and won't have this problem in the future.

I think I've one set of small nut reduction boxes going spare.
How much would you want for them?
£30 posted for the pair.

Thanks for the help guys. With a bit of luck I can replace the parts and get her rolling.
I have it booked in to Type 2 detectives for an inspection next week. So we will see what they say.

I've had a chance to check that they're still on the shelf, which they are. So if you want them, they're available.
