Not sure but they should have a Castle nut with split pin through them.

I might have a spare one if you need one?

Cheers, what does iirc stand for please.

iirc is 'If i remember correctly'

They are M14 bolts originaly as Andy says they have a castle nut and split pin end to them. But i normally replace with a straight bolt and nylock nut

I am sure the bolt should be Grade 10.9 material strength as well Grades of bolts

Although this Bolt Grade Calculator doesn't have 14mm diameter, it does show the difference in grades of bolts.

Most 10.9 bolts are usually Dark Grey/Black in colour

I hope this diagram helps

Cheers, its meant to be M14 from what i've learnt, but my new chassis leg has a 12 mm hole which i'm reluctant to drill out. So I'm going to get the bushes sleeves made with a 12mm hole, hopefully this will be strong enough.

Do you want me to look out and measure an A series one? im sure i have one in my box of bolts.

The chassis leg should be sleeved to stop it collapsing. Torque nut to 58 ft lbs

Here is a pic of the A setup.

Cheers Andy for the offer and the diagram, for some reason the chassis leg hole is 12mm so I'll get M12 bolts.

Hi Andy

Have you an M14 bolt and nut please I could buy off you. Just reamed the chassis leg hole  out so i was wrong about the 12mm hole.

Cheers
