So, TG ships these with the wrong machine screws for the tight space we’re dealing with here.
Anyone have the specs for the proper buttonhead replacement?
I used a slightly diff search term, came up with zip. Will try that, thx!Sorry to be that guy, but do a search in the 80 section for "trailgear nut" and you'll find the thread that has it. That's how I found it an followed it to get them for mine.
The only caveat I'll add is that I really don't like Allen-head screws because invariably the tiny Allen head strips out in the screw, and there is nothing left to get hold of. If I do it again, I will replace them with either a #2 Phillips head or a straight cut screwdriver head (slotted) You cannot "torque" those tiny little screws. and when the Allen wrench slips in it, there's no grabbing it. I could MAYBE see using a Torx version.
No preload first, or would that be pointless?M8x1.25 threads in the axle end. Torque the nut to 25ftlbs and lock it down. Some members go 30-35ftlbs but 25 is working for me on 37’s. If your spindle, bearing housing/hub and /or wheel bearings are warn out, retaining bearing preload will be impossible.
