Default Rag joint nut and bolt, where can I get?

Hi there,

67 machine has only one of the proper nut and bolt sets. As below in picture. The second nut and bolt is a generic nut and bolt and seems to works its way loose once in a while.

Where can I get a nut and bolt set like below?

Thanks,

Gordon

It actually uses two different size bolts. If you buy the rag joint it comes with them, at least from D&R Classic for $12. Might actually be able to check the parts store.

Ah...good pricing from D & R.....that's where I got my coil springs from. The nut and bolts are there.... I'll be just missing the middle piece as in the pic.

Looking in the catalog at D & R and also Ricks it seems that my rag joint that I have now is for the car with manual steering. The look of the power steering rag joint has a half moon shaped "cover" that wraps around one half of the rag joint connecting the 2 bolts.

Oh well, whatever works!

Thanks,

Gordon

I got the entire rag joint and the correct hardware at Auto zone for $7. I always check with them first for my parts and they have most of what I need. Keep in mind the D & R's and Ricks are just suppliers of this stuff and they have a healthy mark up plus shipping. If Auto Zone does not have a part they can usually order it with a part number.Got my 92 IROC steering box for $116 as an example and they have a lifetime warranty.

The flexible coupling kit from D&R Classis is the first kit I have seen with the correct shoulder bolts to hold the flexible coupling parts together. You definately want a metal-to-metal clamp to make a secure connection. The rubber disc in the picture has four laminations of cotton cloth and rubber. It is compliant and has good noise isolating properties (i.e. isolates hydraulic noises from the power steering system.) This type disc was used in power steering applications.

A manual steering disc should have 7 laminations of cotton cloth and rubber. The manual steering disc would be quite a bit stiffer (less compliant) than a power steering disc. Both discs are the same thickness and use the exact same attaching hardware.

Thanks, Jim and Bruce, for the excellent feedback...I really like the notable difference re the 4 and 7 laminations to identify which rag joint is which....so I'll check that on my car when I pull the cover off this weekend....I painted the whole garage during these holidays, so a few more days to go before garage is back in order without dust.
