    front lower wishbone fulcrum shaft

    Hello all, regarding a dax de dion, front lower wishbone, the fulcrum pin/Shaft (swivel pin) that the front lower wishbones fix to, as I'm led to believe, are off an xj40, I'm trying to source a new OEM fulcrum pin, however, all the part numbers that I'm going off regarding the xj40 front lower pins are coming back with the pin that only has the threaded part on the one end, on mine, it has the threaded part on both sides, anyone happen to know what model jag this fulcrum pin comes off?244316500_10159474999501870_2272883893262022581_n.jpg

    The ones with threads at both ends aren't Jaguar items (AFAIK) - they're Dax specials. The manual says:

    "We recommend fitting DAX lower fulcrum pins - these are threaded at bothends (instead of just one), enabling the lower wishbones and bushes to bedisassembled during service without the need to drain the cooling system andremove the radiator."

    I believe you can substitute standard Jaguar items but might not be able to get them out with the body on IIRC.

    I remember the note because I had two sets of new-old-stock Jaguar ones on the shelf because I tried to save money they're no good anymore as I've used them as rollers to move machinery around after lopping the bolt head off!

    Thank you guys for your replies, sorry for the late reply as I've been away on holiday, I managed to source some new pins with threaded bar on both ends from XCS Designs, unfortunately , the only way the pin would come out was to remove the radiator, it's been a testing job but worthwhile job all the same, however, thank you all for your help.
