Rubber cone replacement question
« on: June 12, 2020, 11:20:30 AM »
I have a 1972 leyland mini moke that was restored in Australia in 2005 that I bought in California earlier this year. The rubber cones in the front need replacing. I can buy the parts online but don't know if it's metric thread or standard. I really don't think a moke that was in Australia would use standard threads. Just want to be sure before I take it a part since I need to buy the compression tool also. ???

Hi,

the thread inside the donut(suspension cone) is most likely going to be M14. Most compression tools I am aware of will work on the donuts made in the last 30 years, only the original factory fitted items used a finer thread but it is rare to see them in cars now.

Regards,
Terry

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

Our new ones bought from minisport are M14.
