Layrub bolt sizes.


As per the title. Can anyone advise the sizes of the bolts that attach the layrub to the diff and prop shaft, please?

Them are whitworth screws, Mike. Mine also have aerolock nuts. I'll get the size for you this morning, but they'll be the proverbial hen's teeth.

Thanks, Frank. I rather assumed they'd be something obscure hence the question. Forgive me, but I also assumed you'd be the one with the answer biggrin

I was going to lift the back seat out yesterday, and measure one for you, but it's raining.

Given that BSF and Whitworth are both defined by thread diameter, either should do.

The bolt mics up as a half inch diameter and it's two and a half inches long, from under the head.

The locknuts are an early version of nyloc, called aeronuts I think.

So far so good, but if you've lost the half inch long shouldered spacers I can see why you are confused.

Thank you Frank.

I actually had the opportunity to measure up the layrub and diff flange today and those were the sizes I came up with. 1/2 x 2 1/2. It did beg the question, do I really need BSW? I guess the answer is no unless originality is my priority which it isn't.

I'll order some up from Namrick.

Probably the best Frank in the world.
