Re: Really Struggling With Split Boots

Yeah, what I've read says that you should bolt and glue the seams together in an unstressed state so that the glued seam stays together. Then, once the glue joint is dry, you can put them in the position on the axle housing and flange and clamp them in place. Follow-up status: I did the other three ...

Re: Really Struggling With Split Boots

Hi Paul, Thanks for the suggestions there. Yeah these are definitely pricey boot kits from a forum sponsor. Not cheap off brand. I may have to try aiming a warm air fan at them to see if I can limber them up some. I spent nearly two hours struggling to stretch one on. Can't believe it's that hard.

Really Struggling With Split Boots

Hi folks, I bought a set of split boots from one of the forum sponsors and am really struggling and failing to get even the first boot installed. Old ones came off fine and I've got the first new boot bolted and glued loose on the axle. That all seem to go very well. But no matter how much I slide t...

Re: 10 mm Bolts to Remove Brake Drum

Hi all, Hopefully I'm not repeating something that I missed above, but if you pick these up at a hardware store, you'll also need to know the thread pitch - it's 1.50. Or in other words, M10-1.50 x L. L being whatever length you choose. Mine are M10-1.5 x 50. Fine pitch metric bolts are also commonl...

Re: What the Heck is This?

Thanks Albert. I think you may be right. On one of the FB pages, another just suggested the same thing. Time to pull the fuel gauge. I had hoped the wiring issues were limited to only the harvesting of the hazard switch and signal flasher by a previous owner(s), but it looks like I need to look a li...

Re: What the Heck is This?

Thanks very much guys. With those two images, I was able to find the brake switch- not at all where I was originally looking. : )


Unfortunately, the mystery continues. The brake switch is wired up, so what this object above is still unknown.

What the Heck is This?

Hello all, Newbie here. I recently acquired a 710K that is largely in good shape but looks like someone pulled off a couple under-dash parts by lopping off wires. I've been going over the wiring diagrams posted here and the service manual but am having trouble identifying the item in the photo below...

Re: Bleed Screws -- Lockers and Brake cylinders

Newbie here. Am I missing something on these bleeders. I'm getting ready to flush all my hydraulic systems on my recently purchased 710K and thought these bleeders were readily available at SAV and EI?
