TAKEN - NOSEWHEEL BOLT EXTENSION KIT FOR TOWBAR, WHEN WHEEL IS FITTED WITH WHEEL PANT

Post by XL2driver »

Hi folks, cleaning out the office and found this.

This is for an XL-2 with wheel pants - the kit extends the bolts on the wheel pant to allow a towbar to be slid fully over the bolts.
Without this kit there is very little 'grip area' on the bolt if you have the nose wheel pant on.
These kits were kindly made by Dwayne Waters who used to work at Liberty, and he did an excellent job creating them. However I'm not sure if he still has the ability / time / interest in making any more.
If someone has a lathe in their workshop, they could take this kit and use the Teflon spacers as templates to make more for anyone else who wants them. The exact bolt part numbers are included, as shown in the photos.

Free to whoever want's them. You can PayPal me $10 for the shipping if it's not too much trouble.
Cheers.
