Reasonably urgent question

Recommended Posts

Chaps, could I ask your advice?

My 90 is presently sat in a mot station 30 miles away with a new failure sheet.

It's failed on, the tyres rubbing on the radius arms. (I've got 33x12.50 tyres fitted)

Tester says "wind out the lock stops"

Can't be done, already out as far as they'll go.

So I'm thinking, I'll replace the bolts with some longer ones. Does anyone know what size bolts are fitted, & what I should replace them with (as I can't check at present).

There's a nut & bolt place near my work, so I could get some on the way home. :)

Yes you can replace them, I did, but get sone nuts to use as locking nuts as well. As for the size, I think it was M16 but can not be sure sorry.

They are M12 bolts. As said, you need two plain nuts to act as lock nuts. I don't know the exact length, because it will depend on your wheel offset. However if you get them 100mm long, that should be plenty, and they can always be trimmed with a grinder or hack saw as necessary.

As said, wind them out to reduce lock.

What about change the tyres for 205's on skinny rims just for testing. I used to have a set of Avon TM's for just that. Or what i have taken to do, is after wearing through the webbing on an old set of hockey sticks is weld a piece of stainless plate to the hock in the appropriate place, told the MOT man that was the anti-rub stop device, and he raised an eyebrow but accepted it....

There must be some somewhere as the works firewall blocks me now...never used to, it means I have to work at work..... :blink:

Still lets me on to ORRP and others though :o

probably because the word 'porn' is in some of the replies, just blame Les H, he started all this porn thing.

Simple borrow some smaller tyres of a mate and take it back for the MOT . Can't fail it if they are not rubbing.

Once you get the MOT then go home and change the tyres back

Simple
