i believe there should be a lock-stop screwed onto the top of the trunnion, what diameter should they be? mine are missing alltogether on mine and when i'm turning out of my drive it sounds like the tyres are going to come off the rims....do they all do this? my herald used to do the same with too much lock applied. non pas btw.

thanks craig

Does it only do it on one lock (left or right)? If so, then it’s also possible that your rack isn’t centralised (has had the tracking set by tweaking one side only in the past).

On the none pas cars the bottom wishbone brackets are on the opposite sides to the pas cars - check that yours are correct. I had a none pas 6A but cannot remember if it used he same lock stop trunnions as the 5's or if like the pas cars lock stops were not fitted at all.

no happens both ways, but i have changed it from pas. swapped the top arms around, changed the bottom brackets and the trunnions for non-pas ones during the changeover. had the tracking done while i was at it.

cheers craig

There should be a screw thread in the top of the trunnions for the lock stop bolt (35) under the bolt head there is a washer (36) and a concentric washer (34) the concentric one is turned to limit the lock movement and the bolt tightened to hold it in position.

The spacer 34 is eccentric to allow adjustment of the lock limit.

My 5a had one eccentric, and one concentric. Easy to turn a substitute.

It’s about the same diameter as the boss on the trunnion.
