I bought the AB kit. Included everything needed to make the tire carrier good to go.

Thanks! I assume it's this kit right here, for anyone else who might be looking.

Hrmmm. The McMaster specs for the shoulder bolts above in post 16 seem right (M12, 1.75). But the shoulder diameter tolerance seems too fine (much as my locally sourced bolts) to fit. I assume all would work well with these and new bushes. Or are you suggesting that something else is wrong here?

Thanks!

The thread pitch is different for the bolts that thread into the carrier. The one that goes through and has a nut on the end s fine.

Think I paid 50 shipped for everything from AB. New Bushings, bolts, nuts.

Paul, the thread pitches are fine, but I found the bolts to be a very tight fit with new bushings.

Alex bought the mcmaster set and the threads were different. I haven't seen it in person but maybe she can chime in.

All I can tell you is I discussed this with Alex, bought the items and used them before posting my results here.

Just talked to Alex. Didn't realize she ever found the right part. Good to know. First set she ordered that were from a part number posted here were wrong.

Posted this one other place.

Charles is it 6659k34 or 6659k35 for the bushings. I don't have my original ones anymore but it appears that if you use the 35 model it is a bit longer bushing and will block the grease port. If that is the size they used from the factory I guess it is no big deal.

It's too far back to check my order history with mcmaster, but 6659K35 should be what I used.

Old Post - but one of my many winter projects

I was sick of the rattling...so a retrofit of the OEM NAS rear tire carrier is one of my many winter projects. A few questions I wanted to float by folks who have done this:

1) Any tips re the best way to remove the old OEM Bronze Flanged Sleeve Bearings? I am thinking I am going to have to pull out the torch and try heat.

2) Re: the AB Spare Tire Hinge Replacement Kit
http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/8987
the longer bolt isnt the right size for my 94 tire carrier? Was this true for others? Does anyone have the contact info for the guy on the board from AB (is it Eric)?

3) Ill prob blast the carrier and bits, then POR 15 it. Any recommendations for a top coat? From my past experience POR does not hold up well to UV

This is a great thread for this project.

Thanks

Easiest way to remove bronze bushings is to hit them with a chisel and a hammer (don't damage the steel, though.) It doesn't take much force to crack them into pieces because the material is quite brittle.
