I've just acquired an ME130 which is in reasonable shape except for the main pivot pin.  The pin was damaged a long time ago and no longer has the 'top' end - it is just a pin.  I was intending on just welding a plate onto the pin and dropping it in place, then tacking it but after reading, there is mention of 'bushes' and 'locking' screw.
Has anyone a pick of what this pin looks like or at least a decent picture of the top end when in situ?
It would be much appreciated. :)

To add a little detail, this is a picture of what I have.  I'm pretty sure the pin would have had a plate welded to the top and I can't imagine it just floating in there but there is no obvious fixing.  Can anyone show me what it should look like?

Hi Jake
Are you still after a picture? If you are I'll try to get one next week from my ME130

Thanks!  Forgot about this post.  I welded a 10mm plate to the pin only to find there is only about 4mm clearance so I ground it off again (arrgghhh) and welded a 3mm plate on.  All is well with no sign of damage.
