Actually similar to what Paul mentioned, machine the end of a small bolt down to locate inside the nipple if there is still room then with the arc welder put the bolt in the hand pieceee and let the welder do its job and attach the bolt to the nipple and easy out. This does 2 things it heats the cylinder up which aids in nloosning the bolt and gives you the head of the bolt for a spanner to try to undo it.

Hi Colin HD, This the best photo I have mate.



The spring just locates each end & once you attach the bisector rod you then locate the end in a tongue & slot & then tighten the nut up which compresses the spring.
Do you have a workshop manual?
cheers
Pierre


Thanks Pierre, I’ll be stripping them down in a few weeks.

What I was after is a pic of spring on the ‘outside” of the cylinder, I know it attaches to the ‘lug’ in the pic below, but how does it attach to the actuating rod.

No, I’ve not been able to find a manual.

Thanks
Colin

Mig is the go, easier than stick for this operation
Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

Many MIG welders have a MMA setting which is for arc welding. You may need to reverse polarity depending on whether you are MIG welding with or without gas. IF welding with gas then yes polarity will need to be reversed. Ask your mate (Tony? I think) who pays you a visit to help out with the welding to be certain.

When I build up weld on a broken stud I use a copper washer so the weld doesn’t stick to the housing. This is a little tool I made from copper pipe which has a useful handle.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Colin HD, here's some pages out of the K Workshop Manual that tell you how to dismantle the Bisector units, re-assembly is the reverse of course, so hope this helps you.

The past week I've moved onto the tray. (having a break from mechanical & electrical issues) :)
Trying to keep the original look but narrowed down the tray width to suit my garage space as I wont be loading double spaced pallets plus I like the narrow look on this model anyway.
I repaired the main beams which were damaged at the ends using re-cycled hardwood timber for that & also the crossmembers following the original patterns.
Need to make another trip to the Re-cycle yard for the outer combing beams & floor in the next few weeks.
Not sure yet whether to paint the rest of the timber in a distressed look RED or just rube it down with Linseed Oil ? Your thoughts appreciated.

Managed to locate the missing tray hardware which I had forgotten I had stored at my brothers house!!
