Got back at it yesterday and had had great success at drilling into the studs to get my extractor tool to work.
I had enough spares to get the axle secured as it was, and we will see if they hold.

He passed away last week after a short bout with cancer. Fawk Cancer.
The 45 is '77 or '78 I think and I have no idea of it's history.

The photos are mine taken during a recent...
