Optimax lift ring

Cheeky perhaps, but does anyone in the Southampton area have a mercury Optimax lifting eye/ring attachment I could borrow for a few days?
Much appreciated.

I'm going to guess that it's a UNF thread, have you any idea what the diameter of the thread is? I'm pretty sure I've got some UNF bolts here and can sort you out with some angle bracket that you could drill and bolt the the thread in the top of your flywheel.

Your right he's sold what was listed.

Here's the item number though. 140663747157. Put it into eBay then drop him a message, I'm sure he will re-list for you
