Oh dear, broke a bolt...D30

Hi guys, I tried to adjust the steering knuckle stop and one of the bolts snapped.

It's not metric so now I'm lost overhere.

Anyone have one of these lying around?

So if it's not metric...is it SAE?



Just saw that you are in Spain, so Im guessing it may be kind of hard to come across SAE bolts.

The bolt is nothing more than a special head 3/8-24 grade 8 bolt with a nut tack welded in place after it is adjusted.

You can do the same thing with a grade 8 bolt and nut. I have many of them, but shipping to Spain may not make it worthwhile for a 10 cent bolt.

I spend a lot of time in Ship Yards in Spain, fabrication is pretty cheap. Go to a machine shop and get them to make you one... Probably cost about $15-20 USD to make up... Sometimes it's easier to pay a little bit more and get the job completed than to mess around for a while and have nothing done at all...

Thanks for the advice guys, think it's solved.
A friendly local Jeeper is going to give me one of his (used) OEM bolts
