Many years ago I was driving an old Britstand grader on a job west of Macksville on the North Coast. One of the tipper drivers, who shall remain nameless but with initials of Gus Munro had an old Perkins powered Toyota . He was loaded up with very large rocks but couldn't be convinced to remove his tailgate. This was before swing out gates had been thought of.

Well Gus goes to tip, a big rock jams up in the tailgate and the body won't come down. Being such a switched on guy, Gus sees a tree back down the road with a branch sticking out over the road. Great, I'll just back under that and it will push the body down. Sweet. While he is backing up he is looking in the mirror at the limb and not where he is going. Oops, off the road, down the bank and now lying on it's side. Before I can get the grader down there to pull it right side up, Gus is out with the grease gun and going for it. Probably the first time in months it had been grased, but that was our Gus.

The bolts are towards the bottom of the wheel. It is the bottom of the tyre that goes flat when you have a puncture, there must be some logic there. :woohoo:
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
