Many thanks Brian and everyone for all your help. I finally got the bearing carrier out and it was the pin as you thought Brian, somehow it had worked its way loose. The whole area does seem original and nothing had moved so I tapped the pin back in and filled the space with solder and used a centre punch to crimp the end over that I reckon it should work ok. The parts I ordered arrived today which once again is amassing. You all rock over there. I ordered a Clymers manual with the order, you informed me Brian that it was out of stock and you had them on a back order. Could you send me one when you get them in. Once again many thanks and kind regards to you all in the west.

Just want let you guys know how impressed I am with the service you provide. You have set the standard to which others should aspire to. The website is extensive and simple to use and parts were very well priced and arrived in Qld over the weekend. Will be referring you to all.
