Default Lost a Bolt - Tag Axle

Getting ready to head south so I thought it might be good to look under the bus to check things out, all good no leaks, then I noticed on the trailing arm for the tag I’m missing a bolt! each side has two or should I say should have two.I take a measurement looks to be 7 inches long by 1 .1/4inches in diameter that’s a big bolt must be important. Friday 3 o’clock jump in the car drive to the bolt supply shop and 1hour round trip,44 dollars later ,bolt in hand i’m under the bus big smile on my face put it in the hole but the bolt it’s too small,Time to get some better measurements so now it looks like it’s 7 inches long by one and three eights inch in diameter because one and a half inches won’t fit into the hole will not fit into the hole bolt stores closed for the weekend .Phone my Bluebird buddy to see what light he could shed on the matter,his first words were did you check WOG I Searched and searched but could not get the right answer so now I’m asking the group to see if anyone knows the correct size

Why don't you just measure the one on the other side???

I know you said a 1 ½ inch bolt won’t fit the hole but if it’s one of the bolts that it appears you’re talking about, I think you’ll find that they are 1 ½” bolts.

1 ½” - 6 X 7”

The bolts don’t really look special to me but just in case they are, here are what I think are good Ridewell numbers for the Bolts and the Anti-Turn washers that go with them.

1130670B105 HHCS 1-1/2"-6NC x 7" LG GR 5 ZINC PLATED
1160673B000 WASHER. INT. TOOTH. LOCK. 1 1/2"

Looks like you are going to need to loosen it all up and get it back in alignment before you can push the 1.5” bolt through the hole. Get a chamfered piece of 1.5” rod and hammer it in the hole if it won’t move easily. I had to do that when I replaced the bushings on my BMC tag.

Be careful working under there. Use adequate stands or supports.

Max.

And they may not be a machined bolt.
Let us know.
