Hi Lintonsteam, there should be a pack of 6ba tapped M6 brass grub screws in the kit, insert the grub screws first and then fit the cladding and two brass strips using the 6 bra brass screws. I found the grub screws a bit long so filed them down a bit first, I also put a small slit with a hack saw in the grub screw to make it easier to tighten them into the block, there may be better ways to fit the grub screws but that's what I did.

I hope the above helps?

Best wishes

Simon

To put the grub screws in I suspect you'll find they will have supplied some 6BA nuts to go on the screws. I recently replaced all mine on the Agri as some had expired and snapped off and I got the grubs, the screws and some nuts and a note to say do the following to install them.

Fit a couple of nuts on a 6BA screw, wind the 6BA screw with nuts into the M6 grub screw and then lock it on with the 6BA nuts, wind the whole assembly into the cyinder head, then release the two 6BA nuts and wind out the 6BA screw leaving the M6 grub in the cylinder head.

Job jobbed Cool
