slider and the outrigger

I just bought a set of equipe sliders which slide into the tubular outrigger in the rear. Any suggestions for getting it to slide into the outrigger? It seems overtime the dirt and rust have narrowed the inside of the tube. Giant rat-tail file anyone?
Thanks

Use drill extension

Once it's cleaned out smear some bearing grease in there too.

when I've had trouble it was because the welds for the bracket over-penetrated the tube and needed to be ground down:

From what I remember when I installed my SG sliders many many moons ago, I used a drill with a grinding stone. Took a while though.

All good advice. Drill a small hole and fit a zerk grease fitting to the outrigger to keep it well lubed.

Cool look Tom. Like the off color powder coat on the wheels. Glad the spacers woked for you, it looks like you have a nice wide stance.

Whats up with the fiberglass shroud up front ? Did you add a/c ?

I think its called "roan brown"(sp), I think it was original in 1985, although it was repainted. The Land Rover CD/DVD i got has a 110 pictured in the same color.

The camera flash gives a bit of a different look, after the first pic I posted, someone asked if it was pink.

I like your new wheels, but those Castors look great in black too.
