There's a little hole you need to line up with the hole in the diff screw head, slip a rod through and twist the other end of the diff (or just turn the respective wheel).

Not sure how you managed to miss it in the manual. I don't have the 008 manual but in the 007 manual is at page 6. Also it is one of those things you would never imagine a manual would leave out.

Ouch. That is a good excuse. Now I really feel sorry for you. I hate teeth.

It's on page 7 in the 008 manual, but you might have a different kind of diffs to what I thought you did, so it mightn't work.

Here:

Page 7 right at the top.

Default You're telling me...

I gave up being a doughnut squeezer a little over a year ago and became an ROV Pilot... I spend most of my time offshore (better half doesn't like me being gone but it pays decent), I spent the last three weeks of this hitch taking antibiotics and antiinflamatories from the ship's doctor, jsut to make the whole hitch... Got home, and two days later went to the surgeon...

What fun to come home and have done right...

What's a doughnut squeezer? A doughnut squeezer?

You wouldn't happen to work on offshore drill rigs?

Hehehehehehehehe! I have not laughed out loud like this before. Hahahaha! Doughnut squeezer. I thought you worked one of those machines that make doughnuts, heheheh haahaha! Man, you'rre killing me. I can't spell right see, what youy've done?

Policeman, hey? Wow, I bet you have a story there.

What is a sat diving ship? I think I know what ROV is but just to be sure, is it a remotely operated vehicle? You know, just to avoid "doughnut sueezer' type situations. Hehehehe! Doughnut squeezer!

That sounds interesting. What kind of jobs do you/these things do? I am familiar with the ROVs used on offshore drill rigs where they monitor what is happening to the drillhole casings, cables, and various piping work. These go down thousands of meters.
