360 Gearbox frontplate to Torque tube bolt thread

Post by Chris_C » 21 Feb 2013 11:00 am

Anyone know off hand what thread the 4 bolts that connect the torque tube to the gearbox flange (the flange that is resting on the bubble wrap in this picture) I'm after diameter and pitch please, I need to grab/make some threaded rod the same and if I can do it before I get to the TT that would be super useful!

Can I add a question?

Has anyone replaced the flange that`s visible in the picture, the one connecting the gearbox to the torque tube? Does replacing it with a stronger one help sorting out the fragility of the drivetrain?

I've never know that part to fail. The common failure is the clamp that holds the Torque bar to the gearbox. The splines tend to give way there

Thx!

Later this year I'll take it out and get a stronger replacement made. Is anyone else interested? Got to warn you tough - might take quite some time.
