    Hi all, I'm wondering which hole the dowel bolt UYG500040 fits in.
    All the bolt heads were corroded so I had to cut them off, I have looked at the opposite side but again the bolt heads are so corroded I can't tell which one is the dowel bolt.
    Cheers Galladog

    The Dowel bolt is slighly larger on the shank but the actual bolt heads and threads are the same diameter once you have the swivel off the bolt will only fit in one hole

    Thanks TorsionBhudda, but just to confuse matters the dowel bolts I have which came in a genuine parts bag have a 13mms head and the other bolts have a 17mm head !

    I presume the hole for the dowel bolt will have a slightly larger diameter ?

    12 O'clock ring a bell with me it's possible that someone drilled out the hole that's at 8 o'clock. I would fit the dowel at 12o'clock

    I found a post on another forum which says that the bolt fits at 12 o'clock.
    swivel pins/bearings are done, but it's dark outside and raining so I'm going to fit everything tommorow and bleed the brakes.
    I also cut a slot in the brake pipe bracket so I don't have to disconnect the brake line in the future.
    thanks for your help TorsionBhudda.
