Admin, admin - we need a post deleting!!!
Phew Gav, which ones of yours need deleting? There seem to be a LOT of candidates
If you took the whole lot off, the site wouldn't be missing out on much Andy
Empty vessels & all of that!!!
Following on from a few posts on Paul's thread, here's a few photos of the clamp in its new position with the latch fitted & holding the carrier closed:
Now its pulling the swing arm onto the bracket fixed to the bumper, everything is nice & secure but I do drive everywhere with one eye on it to make sure its still there!!!
I intend to fit a positive locking mechanism as well as soon as possible, probably sommat like this that I posted earlier in the thread, to prevent accidental opening.
I was think along the same sort of lines. The over centre catch I am looking at will have a built in lock and I will be able to add a pad lock if needed. I will also be mounting the wheel a little higher so I can put the number plate under it.
gav, how is your nato hitch attached?
i can see a square hole, and the nato hitch appears to be the proverbial round peg.
I chopped the big ole fixing flange off as it had been welded up by a PO & therefore the hook didn't rotate any more. Cleaned the stub left from the flange up so it slipped inside 50x50 box section & my welding buddy welded it up
Needs a lick of paint really ;-)
I'll whip it out later & do you a couple of pics
