Post Tim's Bias Bar
Does anyone have any clue as to what thread Tim used on his own brake bias bar? Usual sizes are 3/8 or 7/16 UNF, of which it is neither!

I know mine is a 3/8unf, there were no nuts on it and I had to look for some to fit it.

Had a quick look at mine with torch then remembered not using nuts at all , I'd pushed a 15mm long piece of rubber fuel inj hose over the ' right side ' end . Marked it with white tippex so I can see if it moved a tad , just glancing down the footwell . Easy to adjust by turning the hose , counting turns looking at the tipex line :wink:

Hence - never did know what thread it was :oops:

it is 3/8 UNF. My supplier sent me 5/16 UNF nuts by mistake! Planks!

Would love to put a piece of hose etc over the end, but IVA wont allow it unfortunately!

Put the ''required'' nuts on for IVA then off once done and use my hose method

may well do. To be honest, I fiddled around with the bar when testing the brakes and found no difference in doing so! On a track it most likely shows I would expect
