hi pat threads don't matter to much as I will be drilling it and fitting new. Its for the bell crank problem on workhorse chassis. Been down the workshop and I can find unf, unc and metric taps, but can I find the 1/8 bsp :Angry: So hope to get a mm one. I can always use a bit of PTFE tape on a bsp one.:ROFLMAO:

Thanks geo will have a drive around tomorrow.

Before you go drilling and tapping Olley, you have coincided you maybe working with case hardened steel??It wont be easy and fracturing is a possibility

Hi Geo no its not case hardened, some guys on IRV2.com have already done the mod. Asked me brother who like you is a garage mechanic, ain't seen one on a car for years he says.

You can always buy single grease nipples at your local Agricultural engineers, plus have the choice of screw in, tap in, straight head and angled head.

Hi all done,::bigsmile: not quite as straightforward as I had hoped, because the flange welded on top of the pin hit a bracket when it was only about 3" out, so I had to modify the flange with a hacksaw, (just wasn't room for the 12" angle grinder) it still can't be removed completely because of a bulkhead directly above it, but its enough to drill and tap the bell crank roughly in the middle. You also need to remove the electric plug on the lefthand side close to the bell crank bracket to stop the emergency brake power motor from running.

Tried as far as possible to ensure no swarf went inside by greasing the drill and tap, and then used a few cotton buds. Its pretty thick steel so no worries about the grease nipple going in to far and binding the pin, pumped it up with grease and it squeezed out at each end so ok.

I reckon the only reason for ever having a problem with the bell crank, would be if it hadn't been greased enough when it was fitted, mine was smothered.
