Rick, an extra 4 to 6mm could be beneficial if using the stud support plate, although, on the outfit I made a shouldered nut to keep the maximum thread engagement.

Sadly I don't have any paralever bits, but it may be possible to drill through the bevel box casing where the outer bearing seats and fit a stud to the bevel box. It may need to be countersunk inside the casing.A simple plate with spacerscould then brace the two studs.

Of course, if I had a paralever bevel box in front of me, I might see whyit might not work!

Paul.

Paul.

Hi Have just picked this thread up, there's a pun! on the forum. I was always taught that you should never bottom a stud out in a blind hole as there is a risk of bursting the bottom out of the boss. Hence the need for a plain portion on the stud. John

I'm thinking of having a go at making a support block as described by Sidecar Paul.

Is aluminium grade 6082 t6 hard enough?

I've found this: http://www.aalco.co.uk/datasheets/Aluminium-Alloy-6082-T6T651-Plate_148.ashx

If it's used in bridges it should be strong enough for this job?

Hi Howard,
Don't be too fussy with the material, any lump of aluminium will have the desired effect, just try to get as tight a fit between the stud and the bevel box as possible.

Good luck,
Paul.

OK, I set too with my trusty (rusty), blunt hacksaw and file; I have managed to achieve a nice tight fit between the bevel box, support and stud - just tight enough that it can be pried out with a screwdriver but not by hand.

What I haven't been clever enough to achieve is to have the full 6mm width of the support touching the bevel box; a 4 thou feeler gauge can be slid in from the outside approx half way. Also, I have over-filed about 5mm in length at the rear of the support. While I'm fairly certain there will be enough support for the stud, I wonder whether my crap attempt at filing might cause some damage to the bevel box over time.

So stick with it or start again?

Stick with it Howard, you've already got far more support than the original. cheers

I can't see any reason to expect damage to the bevel box.

Paul.
