All remaining Spring hanger bolts and fittings have been shot blasted. JV's ran the nuts down each one to check the threads were ok, about 4 will need some attention to the thread and one bolt may need replacing.

All left hand motion , chimney and L/H eccentric rods have been moved from walkway into the 4 foot on 6 road.
