Hi

Running a tape flat on the torsion tube to the end of the horn it’s 513mm, from the furthest point ie bottom lip of the horn on the torsion tube it’s 550mm.

Hope that helps you.

Kind regards

Will

Absolute legend & very kind..
Thankyou, yes extremely helpful.. The 550 is a great extra datum & the 513 is almost the 510 I was told previously so I can weld the frame horns on now.... Once again.. Thankyou for your time...
