Anyone is free to post the new picture.

Okay, then, I'll take it. (Sten-Arne sent me the answer to the spring compressor, and I appreciate it, but John was so close I wanted to give him a chance. But whatever...)



This will be either very hard or very easy.

You may be right about that. I only know it as the tool used to open the bearing covers to see if they have enough oil and close them again (I was told not to use my foot to close the covers because grit might get in the box from my shoe).

I'll call that close enough and declare you the winner.
