Oh contrare!

Lady Luck turned out in force today, Ks front bearing was completely shot, in fact when those guys pulled off the hub the remnants of the old bearing just fell onto the floor

Fearing the worst the guys appeared with a bearing of similar size which they eventually managed to get over the stub shaft to get us home - fantastic repair!!

Home now, showered, clean clothes and going to bed very shortly!
