Drive flange bolts

Recommended Posts

The more I look at the pics the more I’m not sure what I’ve got. But BX110095M seems to bring up at least hex bolts. Trip to Fyfe & Mcgrouther tomorrow I think.

Ok the width is 20 mm but I can’t measure the rear ones (they still look the same) due to the spacers. Both dust caps have the lip. So the big question is..... what bolts? I have the flange type somewhere in a cupboard somewhere in the loft, or is it the spare room 🤔🤔

Look the same as my thick drive members to me, IIRC the older plastic caps won't fit the thinner members.

Why can't you measure the rear drive members?

Was in a bit of a rush and it was hissing down. I’ll get it checked better tomorrow 👍

They are nothing special just 8.8 high tensile bolts, 

An example https://www.google.com/shopping/product/1?q=8.8ht+bolts+50mm+long&client=ms-android-vf-gb-revc&biw=360&bih=654&tbs=vw:l,ss:44&prmd=sivn&prds=num:1,of:1,epd:740246495680115981,paur:ClkAsKraX0-tmhvmiUAhcW6U_ceGOit95zTm1i07SSSHvR4Il8oUdVD-XlVYLHjggs6ShJpdN09j2xxzwWQ9zoVdSV-HV3j8R4J7m3D9ZeLT0Hm0Yopbp38Y6hIZAFPVH73TPVUp2GbXwm0VDkTtFP93nKpvxg,prmr:1,pid:740246495680115981,cs:1

The reason for changing to flanged head is for the production machines to hold the heads as a normal hex head would slide deeper into the production  tool socket, whereas the flange stops that happening. 

 

Drive flange bolts should be hi tensile 10.9

check your photos for proof!

Thanks @oneandtwo the ones I bought are actually 10.9 but don’t fit the rear..... at least the front is getting new bolts today 😂👍

Never noticed they are 10.9, sorry for any confusion.

Wondering if your rear drive members are undersized non genuine lr replacement parts,

can you add a photo of the rear drive members.

 The bolts in that have 10.9 on the head & look the same as mine, maybe the bolt holes just need cleaning out for the new bolts will fit.

They are the same as yours, the thing I don’t get is the original bolt slips in and out no problem but the new one won’t slip in past the drive member to reach the thread. I’ll have a hunt for a pack of bolts I’m sure I have somewhere and see if they will fit. Blooming engineers shop was closed early today.

I might have 2 thick early drive members in my garage with bolts. I'm heading back home tomorrow so can have a look & let you know.

Ralph you’re a star for looking those out ! Hang on to them for the minute and if I have any problems with mine I’ll give you a shout. I’m determined to get to the bolt saga finale !! Didn’t have time today as the weather has turned and was also helping a mate get his diff back in on his truck 😊👍 his drive members are defo the thin type on his 2012 truck. So at least I know mines are thicker.
