I think the pair of those grub screws can be found separately in an extra bag that also contains the spring for the carb linkage. Check to see if you have this bag...

That's strange... I thought somebody posted before to say that he received the front pulley for the front ball diff and not the pulley for the oneway...

Actually, was too busy. Instead of relaxing and having a long weekend break, I was more busy in the weekend than I thought I should be compared to week days at work !

Yeah, call it coincidental, I think I'll soon be busy moving to a new place too...

When you've gone through all the bags (as some parts seem to be in strange bags ) I would contact Pieter Bervoets directly. I had a couple of small items missing (the droop screws like you) and he got them sent straight away.

For the droop screws, you could use a different length if it stops you from running the car - probably the upstop screws, as you don't need them.

Cheers, Mark.

Who imported this english weather into Germany...ehm, better keep quiet

Raining cats and dogs here got all my gear in the car so I can drive directly to the track after work, but it looks like a waste of time

Still got Fri and Mon off Hopefully this english weather is gone by then - Sow&Steady: please take this weather from me

Perfectly clear skies here, not a cloud in sight... but the 710 is in pieces...

Anyway, Is there a quicker way of getting hold of Mr Bervoets? I will go onto the myTSN Forum and post, but I am checking for a quicker way?
