The first two coxa axles have been fitted! This process went surprisingly well, and the coxa's went back together without any issues, I'm sure I must have missed something :) Mick and Chris at D & T Precision have done a great job of the new stub axles and the stainless steel bearing housings. I also gave him the coxa plates to re-bore so 56mm to take the bearing housing, again a sterling job Mick!
We only have two engine cranes, one of which is my brother in laws, so I can only hoist two legs at a time. Now the front two legs are back on, I have taken the middle two legs off and sent the coxa plates off to D & T for the next lot of bearing housings to be fitted. With any luck I will get these on sometime over the weekend.
