Rear radius arm bolts.

Post by mn757 » Sat Jul 27, 2019 5:25 pm

Hi all,

Refitting my rear axle and I cant remember if the bolts in the rear-est part of radius arms face inwards or outwards ? Nut on hub side, or nut on axle side ? SE6 by the way. I did take photos but cant find them :| many thanks.

Thank you. No back plates fitted yet so nothing to get in the way.
