Tie-bar mounts

Postby 53 Tudor » Sat Dec 02, 2017 3:01 pm

G'day, (my first post)
Have replaced front bushes on my '53 S11 2-door.
All went well, thanks to many posts on the subject, and nothing too rusted/seized.

My question regards the tie-bar bushing mounts.
My car had bushes with a 5/8" diam. raised shoulder that "located" into the front mounts. (much like shocker mounts on a late model car).
My replacements are like all others I have seen, i.e. slab-sided with no locating raised section.
Wondering if the 5/8" hole in the mounts has been reamed to take the non-standard rubber bushes,
or is 5/8" the standard diam. of the hole? (the tie-bar diam. is about 3/8" where it goes through the bushes).
Cheers.

OK, thanks Alan.
Just wasn't sure if I needed to source bushes same as were used,
but now can re-assemble with standard bushes.
This was the last item needed to complete, all suspension/steering/brake work now finished.
Couple of small items to tidy up, then front-end alignment (don't want to scrub the new Nankangs!)
Then ready to book in for Roadworthy Report.
Getting excited!
Cheers.

p.s. thanks Jonathon H, your post came up as I submitted my post.
Think I will obtain some of these and add later. (shouldn't alter alignment)
