    New shafts for both, new tension shaft, all new bearings and seals.
    Main wheel needed to be welded up and re-machined for a tight bearing fit.

    Local exhaust workshop needed a exhaust manifold machined, Nissan Patrol I think he said, common problem lifting from the head and braking studs.
    This one was almost 1.2mm warp. You can see each end has carbon build up from escaping gases.

    Was able to catch up with a customer at Dubs at the Abby, with his imported Kombi from England.

    First RH Door Sliding Door Hinge Unit. Works a treat, he was so excited to show me it working I thought he was going to hug me.

    He commented that the Old Hinge Unit would not "POP" the door out when opening.
    If you look you can see the large spring has stretched and lost its tension, common problem.

    All sorted, New Exchange Hinge Unit and very happy Kombi owner.
