I've a 1997 Bailey Hunter Lite, I noticed a rear corner steady wasn't winding properly. On inspection, the travel nut had broken. I've now got a shiny new travel nut, courtesy of eBay. Having had a look online, fitting the travel nut seems easiest if the steady is removed first. It's held on by two bolts. The first came undone easy. The second isn't playing (the bolt is turning with the nut). I've got access to the bolt head, but it's a rather rusted dome-head: not immediately easy to prevent it turning. a) has anyone replaced the steady travel nut without removing the steady? or b) has anyone got any tips as to how to stop the bolt turning, to allow me to remove the stuck nut? I'd guess it's a case of trying to make a slot in either the head or the shaft of the bolt, then using a screwdriver? Any advice/tips appreciated, thanks!
