Bugger mate, ahh well it's an experience for the next. I broke a rocker cover bolt on teh EF when i was attempting to repair it, but lucky the bolt was just bending and the bolt didn't break so i was able to get it out of the head.

Yeah right Martin, they were destined to break right!
Ever heard the saying "if it aint broke, don't fix it".
What were you doing anyway, a routine pad change or just pulling it apart because you were bored. You realise the balljoint now need to be pressed out of the spindle - not something I'd want to tackle at home without a workshop press.
