    I also took that bolt out so we could see how the seal is fitted:

    Chears.
    Royal mail. cocked the delivery of mine twice today so... i should get it tomorrow if the actualy find it at the depo ,
    I thought the seal must be held in place . your picture shows me just that and that the inside now has a much reduced volume so no need for a shim im guessing.

    Yeah its held in a lot better than i thought it would be.


    I'm just wondering if the weight will make any difference.





    That's what we're waiting for you to do.....lol
