Thanks Andy,

Want to get cracking on the BD, just need to get the SC finished and then we will be on it.

Just bought a NOS Steering Pin for the BD, came all the way from Canada!

Rich,

If you ever need any cad drawing or machining let me know! Pin looks pretty straight forward! But like hens teeth no doubt!
