14SF "tech" info
See: updated/renamed post
I used the U-bolts and plates from a 14bff on my 14bsf. But I still dont know what size or if they are metric.
Pretty sure the SF has 3.375" tubes like the FF does. I just opened up my 1/2 ton spring plate holes a little and made them work...
Should be 15/16". Threads should be 5/8 NF, whatever pitch that is (11 tpi is coarse, I'd imagine 18 tpi is fine, but I can't remember).
Yep, same size tubes, should have used search, but I was in a hurry.
My measurements didn't come out to exactly what everyone elses did, but the calipers I am using aren't quite big enough to make me feel I'm getting a real accurate measurement, and I believe you guys anyways.
What are you doing measuring in inches anyways? Aren't you supposed to be using centimetres to cheque things like this?
Appreciate all the help. 10 bolt u-bolt nuts are 15/16", so unless they changed to metric for some reason later on, 10 bolt, 14SF and FF should all be 15/16" to remove.
1/2 ton spring width is 2.5" give or take a tiny bit, just in case someone runs across this post at a later date and can use that info.
