With the tow hook “revitalised”, it’s time to fit it to the rear cross member. This is done by way of a drop plate.
Consideration also needs to be given to mounting the trailer socket. There is a bracket available to house the trailer socket in the PTO aperture in the rear cross member but I rather like this left open… you never know, I might need it one day.
When ordering any parts for LGL, I avoid, like the plague, anything labeled as “Britpart”. However on the odd occasion, it’s not alway possible to identify the manufacture; as was the case with the electric socket!!!
The socket was supplied with no fixings and the 3 fixing holes were of such an odd size, I needed to drill the body out to fit something practical.
The next job is to wire the socket. The wiring loom has 5 wires… the socket has 7 terminals! Head scratching can now commence…
