Wanted, spare wheel dish/cup securing

Recommended Posts

for holding the wheel down into the tub im looking for the dished cup type fastener.

I have the bolt but missing the cup, it sits inside the rostyle and then the bolt secures thru it to hold spare wheel in place

 

later ones were a flatish bar / butterfly style

 

looks like the rostyle needs the cup and ford sports wheels have the butterfly?

 

reason im thinking this is the bolt i have is not long enough if used with the butterfly type bracket, but if i remeber from swampy (raining and garage locked up) LAZY the dished cup would allow this bolt to reach.

 

anyone help?

I from memory early think Mk4 are the same or very similar to the one you need Pete may be easier to find.

That's the one that Pete refers to as the butterfly one Hans

My First Car was an Early Mk4 estate and the spare wheel fixing I had was similar to yours Hans just Wider on both ends I think, I can understand Pete-C refers to as a butterfly.

According to Mr Fiche there was one type of clamp thingy produced from 07-70/10-71 and a different one from 10-71 onwards.

This ties in nicely with rostyles being produced from 07-71/10-71 and sports steels from 10-71 onwards.

Now if you really wish to to pull the birds and impress them you could mention that there were 4 different lengths to the retaining bolts. :wub:

bracket is upside down but thats it!!! you fit it upside down for standard rims and for rostyles it swaps round
