Re: Thread on Drags SS 3/8 bolts & nuts

Hi

I recently performed a full restoration of an FH, all the fasteners were sourced from Acme Stainless, very good quality and service.

Re: Wiring hole position on E3L dynamo end cap

Hi From my research, I think the end caps, (200902, 200918), with the church door grommet were not fitted to Huntmasters - check out the Lucas documentation. Having said that, I have a 20036A, (BSA A10 dynamo), fitted to my 58 Huntmaster and the loom outlet is at 0700 which leads itself to routing u...

Re: Thread on Drags SS 3/8 bolts & nuts

Hi

I too use Nooky's Nuts, I just wish all of the bolts he supplies weren't set bolts - I can highly recommend his polished stainless A10 carburettor drip tray :D

Re: Thread on Drags SS 3/8 bolts & nuts

Hi I'm another very satisfied customer of ACME stainless, the quality is very good, delivery efficient and price competitive. I have no reservations in using a 3/8" freecutting stainless steel bolt in a, (double), shear application - I would rather not substitute UNF items which have a differen...
