A series track rod end locking nut (SOLVED)

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where you can get the track rod end locking nuts for the A series or the size so i can track some down?

As im unable to locate the safe place i put mine in 🙂

 

I found these but im not sure if the size is correct for the A?

They are slim nut. 

Yep, slim nut . The ones that wind up and lock the track rod where it comes out of the steering rack. Think i might have found one, but need to take the track rod out to see if it is the right one. If it is im just after the one!

Not sure on the B, the A has the castle nut on the ball joint but a slim nut to lock the trackrod arm after you have adjusted it out from the rack.

That shows the one 🙂 Its the one between the tie rod end and the end of the steering rack universal joint. I dont suppose you know the size or part number?

I think you mean the one in the red cirkel:

On a "B" (other design but compareble) it is a 14mm thread, if so we are yet sure what nut it is. 

Than we can dig further, so let us know.

I have a b series rack in the garage somewhere I can check the size if you need me too.

Just went and checked m14 X 1.5 pitch on the b if it's the same

That's the one 🙂 I have one which looks like it should be right so i will give it a measure and see if its the same size and then i should be able to get a couple of new ones. Thanks for all the help.

Just thought i would update this thread in case anyone stumbles across it, as i hate it when you find a thread and no one puts on it how it was resolved!

I found these and they fit perfect on the A series.
