Does anyone have the front subframe front bolts that go through the chassis leg also the bush collars where the bush sits on..
I've dropped the frame to repair the nearside leg but can't remove the bolts as bush collars are really rusted together and will have to be ground off.

I'm in Peterborough if anyone local.
If you can help, please PM or

Thanks very much

The bolts are HB1148 and HB1138.

HB1148 is an hexagonal head bolt 1/2"UNF x 6''
HB1138 is an " " " 1/2"UNF x 4-3/4"
two of each are needed. Please use new nyloc nuts.

You may find these from a local agricultural or HGV engineering supplier.
Failing that, I suggest you try TD Fitchett in Telford quoting the part numbers.

Thanks for reply, i can probably salvage the bolts, It's the top hat style bush spacers i will need.
I will try and grind down vertically to try to free them and as a last resort will then weld up the grind line, but not ideal.
So if anyone can help.
