Hi everyone. New member. I've rather foolishly taken on a part built project which (and I'm sure its a familiar story) was nowhere near as finished as led to believe. However, its a challenge to be overcome and will be worth it I'm sure. I had to change the wheels and have got Revolutions. The suspension is Jaguar (as is the engine-V12) and I need sleeve nuts to hold them on. Size:sleeve depth 1.75" Sleeve dia:.75 thread 1/2" unf. Any ideas where to source as they seem to be obsolete? Will also need Washers:1 1/8" dia.:-(

Hi Gramps,

Welcome to the Madhouse http://www.revolutionwheels.com/ Part number RA3116NYN

Wheel nuts are 1.70 each & washers are 0.25 each excluding vat.

Just phoned them, the nuts are obsolete, they suggested Select Autos but they cant help either.
Anyone got any ideas?.I have thought of getting wheel extension shouldered studs and then use the shorter sleeve nuts which are available

Hi Gramps

Welcome. I did not think there was anybody out there older than me and that mad to play around with Cobras. Ah, to feel young once again.

Hi Tony,

Try an email to Warren at Revolution "warren.rdt@uku.co.uk" He offered me some 6 months ago. I've got 9 of the originals your welcome to, not in A1 condition but usable. I've also got a full set (20) of the shorter ones, brand new. They only screw on 5 or 6 threads, but you could have the nut seats in the front of the wheel milled down a few mm, a mod I was going to do untill I bought new wheels.

Hi Chris,
I'l ltry Warren and let you know how I get on. In the meantime I would appreciate having 9, at least its a start. Let me know what cost is involved and we can make arrangement to get them here.
Cheers

Chris,
I have solved the problem by getting shouldered studs (from a wheel extension kit) with the shorter nuts and washers that are still available. Just need turning to round and shortening by about 1/4". Available from Trackstore (www.trackstore.co.uk).
This may help others with the same problem.
cheers
Tony
