Hello,

Quick question - can someone tell me the diameter of the rear wishbone tubes please?

Cheers

Well, the tube stock would not likely have been metric in the day. Converting from John's numbers sounds like 7/8" OD and 1/16" wall thickness.

Thanks Russ,

Metric is fine anyway as I was ordering some 'P' clips for the dirt shields and I've only seen metric ones available

Cheers
