Oh dear, broke a bolt...D30
 
Hi guys, I tried to adjust the steering knuckle stop and one of the bolts snapped. :banghead:

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? :confused:



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

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 :thumb:
