Hi,

I'm replacing all of the fasteners on my Toledo's front suspension. I'm having trouble finding a source of nut 143804 (lower right in image). Does anyone know how it differs from 143802 and if I can use this instead? 143802 is offered by certain suppliers and I believe that is a nyloc 5/16 " UNF x 1/2 ".

Image

Thanks.

Originally Cleveloc not Nyloc nuts to be pedantic! 3/8 UNF, have you tried looking around the Triumph range, same fasteners were used all over the place, this any good as a suggestion? https://www.revingtontr.com/product/ny6 ... 5-32-thick

Thanks for the reply - that's very helpful and helped me to understand that despite spending many hours looking at this page of the parts book I was misunderstanding the diagram entirely! I can now see that it goes onto the end of HB926 which as you say is 3/8" so your suggestion makes perfect sense.

Thanks!

Is there any benefit to using Cleveloc over Nylock , I've been using Nylocks since I ran out of Cleveloc?

Only if there's any heat about, I've only ever used them on propshafts myself.
