    Do I spy on the end of the shaft, of the drive pulleys ( largest and the smaller machined brass ones ), the hexagonal external , round internal tunnel component from an electrical Blue Point ( BP ) connector. ( now made by Clipsal etc. but known in the trade as a bp. )
    Good work.

    I once used beer bottle lids and tek screws to hold the front disc rotor of an MZ etz 250 motorcycle into place between Normanton and Kurumba. In Summer. Crazy kids.

    Sounds like we could have a lot in common.
    I can remember when we bought 10kg blocks of frozen export prawns and blocks of frozen Barramundi fillets from the boats that were based in Kurumba.
    All business conducted at the pub of course.
    My mate Al Gilman had a shack there before the place was proclaimed a town.....and was stuffed forever.
    Rules, laws, permits, committees, councils and all the other forms of red tape killed the frontier soul of the place.
