cheers think I got it worked out now, I would love to have a local "proper" breakers, but I think my closest would probably be around 150 mile drive at a guess, and even then I am literally guessing, probably have to go up to bristol or down to plymouth in all honesty, and thats 200 miles round trip for either

hence why all my buys are online

probably going to make my own axle plates/adjusters now, cheaper and just a bit more rewarding
