More questions........
I am getting the last of the welding repairs done on the chassis.
The bracket that holds the spare wheel clamp onto the chassis out-rigger. The parts book shows two holes for the bolts (first photo) but only list 1x 4-3/4 inch bolt.
My chassis (second photo) has one hole in bracket but two in the chassis, spacing is closer that the parts book illustration. Which hole is correct? Can someone post a photo how the chassis should be.
My 2A chassis number is 28700207a.

Thanks.
Leon.

This is what it looks like on mine:

Perhaps the two set of holes on the outrigger were there to adjust the bracket based on wheel size? On the other hand, the bracket I have there has a plate inside it that does not seem to allow any other position than the one it is in now.

Thanks guys.
Just to confirm, the distance from my two holes back to the main chassis rail are 256mm & 280mm.
Which of the two measurements do you have?

Hi. I have followed the discussion about the wheel clamp with interest as mine appears to be messed about with....my outrigger also has two holes....one at 256mm and the other at 275mm....the one at 275mm looks less original....so I would suggest that the 256mm one is correct.

Thanks 'parksy64' will await your reply.
If you (or anyone else) has the original battery tray, there is other measurement that I need. The vertical height of the tray LH bracket. See photo attached.

All three parts of the chassis are on their way to the 'dip stripping tank' and then the 'hot dip galvanising tank'. This will cost me an arm & leg. Will see what its like when it gets back.
