Does anyone have one decent Watts linkage arm for an SE5?
Thanks,
Nick

If you have no luck, you can use a SE5a version. They are different but you can only get new bushes for SE5a. I had my SE5 linkages inners machined to accept the bushes. A previous owner had used a piece of heater hose... In hindsight it would have been a lot easier and cheaper for me to have bought some SE5a linkages.

Is the difference not 7HA/4HA axles rather than 5/5a?

I think the 5 4HA links are the same as the 5a,so they will be fine as mine has the 4HA axle.
