    Evening all, my TD5 lower swivel pin has excessive play in it so I ordered a rebuild kit.
    The lower swivel pin bolts part BH108061M are rusty as hell so I thought I would replace these, the manual says they are M8 but gives no length, anyone know the length ?
    Also are they any type of special bolt or just standard M8 ?

    Cheers Galladog

    Whip one out to check the length then put it straight back , won't do any harm.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    The manual I have is the genuine parts catalogue ( STC9021CC )
    Diagram E22 part no 14, BH108061M is listed as " Bolt-hexagonal head M8".

    Hmmm, could be a Haynes misprint?
    Edit
    Oo , sorry. googled that number hand Gaynes came up. Missed the bit where you said it was genuine parts catalogue. That'll be the 1664 :rolleyes:

    To be fair, I was watching football.
    Anyway, don't they say 'every day is a school day'! So, when is a man to drink? ;)

    Fair enough, I went a bit Mackers and enjoyed a couple of Baileys watching some new-fangled “RugbyX” mullarkey. Should have watched some footy instead.

    Sorry I got all confused never read your post properly Yeah the bottom pin bolts are M8 still 10.9 I believe as part of the steering and suspension.The tops are M10 and the bolts that connect the swivel to axle are M10. If your in Alloa it may be worth giving Gemm 4x4 a call they might have them in stock and they are only in Larbert,Falkirk. 01324 557735 is their number.

    I won’t be in a hurry to see it again. The concept probably sounded good on paper, but in reality it was awful.
    Ended up watching a documentary on the 40s/50s boxer Freddie Mills. Fascinating story and quite sad towards the end.
