    I picked up more than expected from Lincoln :Sad:

    Is this to close to the tyre wall to be repairable?

    I expect the worst.

    It appears to be in the chunky part of the tread ... depends how long it is.

    Seems to be far enough into the tread block to me, but I suppose it depends if the screw is left or right hand thread::bigsmile:, hope you do get away with a repair job.:thumb:

    Its the linkage to the load sensing valve. It alters the braking depending on the distance between the body and the axle. The smaller the distance the heavier the load the more braking effort required. That the theory I believe.

    Thanks Lunarman.:thumb: - That sounds quite scientific for a rusty bit of linkage

    Looks too far out to be repairable to me. But I'm not a tyre dealer.

    Have you squirted any fairy liquid or any thing on it to see if it is passing, if not the I would be tempted to pull it out it may only be an inch long :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Best thing would be to drive to a tyre place with it in and let them tell you. It may be short enough to pull out with no air leaks.
