I've got some new bushes to rebuild the steering knuckle, but I don't think the set screws holding it together are going to come out without a fight.
Does anyone know the thread+size for these little beggars? I'd like to get some spares before I start.
Unlike this one mine has cross head not sockets and the ends have been peened out.


Cheers,
Sam

I remember being wrong once before Laurence Cochrane Newtownards Northern Ireland. 1972 Gt6 2600EFI The Mutt. Some original parts fitted, Not many ! Early PI motor overbored to 2.6. Lightened & balanced, ported chambered, cam'd 6-3-1 manifold. Running on DTA engine management system incorperating the PI throttle bodies fitted with electronic injectors and throttle position sensor. 0-60 4.7s & 7000rpm. Seriously annoys owners of modern stuff ! (particularly coz its a heap) 2500 S box with competition 28% od. 3.63 diff with a quaife in it, innit ! Rotoflex based rear but with a swing spring fitted & sliding shafts.(swing spring rotoflex without rotoflex's). Koni's front Spax rear. Hydraulic handbrake. Citroen xantia discs 11,1/4 in dia under Morris Garages 15 in Maestro alloys.

I think they are shouldered bolts though, so work hard to save what you have! The early couplings didn't splay teh ends but used lockwire, so much easier to rebuild.
The polybush rebuild actually works very well. My UJ replacements probably won't last as long!

You are absolutely right! Thanks for the info/warning, there's no way I could have replaced those bolts (having now stripped one apart and seen them)
