GTE Trunnion Rebuild Kits

Post by Oaksey » Sat Jul 05, 2014 12:16 pm

Everyone seems to find all the trunnion rebuild kits a bit rubbish but this one seems pretty good to me. No messing around to get the top hats to fit or anything

Any reason you didn't support the traders Josh, last one I bought was about the same price from GW's


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

I'd heard they needed a lot of fettling to get them to fit properly. I was buying a load of other stuff on eBay at the time too and I hate using the phone :)

Mine fitted trouble free, it is a shame that neither trader do web orders I agree, think they'd get more business if they did, I know QRG do bits and bobs on fleabay and the new(ish) guy at GW's Sean? used to run the fleabay shop of his previous employers, perhaps we should suggest to them at Curbs

I'd certainly buy more from them if it was online. I know it'd be a pain to list EVERYTHING (having seen GW's stock. 150 sets of 5a heater control grub screws anyone? :lol: ) but maybe just the consumables that people buy regularly.
