    After trying to remove the excentre ( I think the "body" might be a press fit rather than threaded) so I could adjust the rod height (the new needle was taller) for a month I gave up and shortened the rod. New seal on the excentre and a new NRV pip and we are back in business:

    No, definitely threaded. I know this because I had to dismantle my N.I.B. 200 to see why the control wheel wouldn't turn 360 degrees. It turned out to be an excess of verdigris, cleaned it off - job sorted.
