    Approx 150mm from memory. My Pilote one was very much enclosed so any "tommy bar" would need to be pretty flat.

    A bit of feedback on this. I took along the key for my 9" grinder, not large enough and did not fit. Which left the shifter option only, which worked along with a screwdriver through hole at end of shifter, basically a tommy bar setup. Which worked and, Annie managed to remove and screw back on to a good watertight standard.

    Use of wood as described by other posters, would not work, as access is very tight. The 4" waste pipe, I would say is the better option, which Annie will organise if she ever returns to base.

    Annie's happy smiling face that a solution was found was payment enough, Gordon. Also, Madame Taya did not snap at me, that was the bonus!
