    Nice progress Neil.
    May will be fine for me. Actually May next year will probably be fine for me!
    Let us know when you want some cash.

    I tried a slightly different approach to sourcing the pins and turned some of these :

    From the work I've done on my catches , I'm thinking the head of the clevis pins may need thinning down a bit to fit under the body of the top catch?

    Possibly but these are the 30mm long ones. For the pivot pin, I tend to re-use the originals as they are not really on show once assembled. Easy enough to skim the head if I do decide to replace them though.

    I found that the dimensional tolerance on the levers were 'somewhat lax'! I had pins made to identical sizes and the fitted some catches but not others,took a bit of messing and having another pin made at a slightly different size (distance from head to the 'slot' for the clip).

    Also had to prise open on the bodies very slightly to make it fit over as mentioned above.

    Leigh - that was my experience too - but it all worked out in the end!

    Hi Dave,
    Have you got a link to where you got the over length clevis pins?

    Thanks.
