New Metatrsus Bearings

I have had the metatarsus cheeks bored out (Thanks Mick & Chris at D&T Precision) and have fitted my test bearings which are igus igubal type. I'm using these to start with but I intend to replace them with maintenance free steel bearings.

After fitting the bearings and re-assembling the ankle I re-tested the load pin and it seems this has fixed the pre-tension issue, so now I just need to re-place these with steel bearings and repeat x 5!
