View Full Version : Disco bolt size
20-08-2002, 11:05 AM
I wanna make myself a pair of quick disconnects so i was hoping to just replace the bolt in there with one that has a little hole at one end and a pin can go thru it holding it in place.
what sort of size bolt do i need? Also does it have to be high tensile cos i can imagine have a bitch of a time drilling a ht bolt!

Yea sorry for a TJ
did anyone help Deane out with this? As I am interested as well. Can you get them pre-drilled?
Just an ordinary bolt wont do what you're thinking of as it will rattle around unless you weld it to the bracket. You need to do a proper job on it as in get two pin bolts made .
As for the clevis pin they're about 50c at any trailer place smile.gif
it is hard to find clevis pins in aus that are the right size, well where i looked anyway.
Might be a good idea to visit a tractor supply place as they will have a good range.
Alternatively you can get a bolt the right size then work out where you need a hole in it. screw a nut onto the area you want to drill then drill through the nut and all the way through the bolt. Just means it is really easy to get a hole in the middle of the bolt and nice and straight.
this used to be the site to find the info but it seems to be down: reapers world (http://www.reapersworld.com/budgetjeepmods/)
thanks for the tip. will try those options.

I have seen specs for a Tyne Pin/Clevis Pin combo requiring a 1/2"x2" Tyne Pin which requires a little grinding with a dremel tool to fit through the bushings in the lower end of the stock swaybar connect. Then a correct size washer allows the next best fit clevis pin hole to secure the pin.
I have not been able to source Tyne Pins here though yet.
Still if you can find the pins the whole system will cost under 20$.
