Note that the upper and lower dzus fasteners are different lengths. go to
#12....New club `must have` a laser cut key ring washer with `7` logo in the middle for Dzus fasteners...orders?
Great idea! I'd be up for one of those.
I've seen a different solution, a single spring loaded fastener at the centre, which is the same as those used at the front of the bonnet. It works well.
Where did you see that Brian ?
#1: ...when refitting nose cone which order do you secure them...
I fit the lower ones first.
Re washers, tools etc, I bought a pair of stubby screwdrivers (like these, but not this brand) about 20 years ago. (The Phillips one is for the front lower inboard screw on the pedal-box cover.) They live happily together in the handbrake well.
Innovated, tested and developed by the one and only ECR #17
Can't claim to have innovated it but it does work well. No feeling around on your knees ( in the rain) for the dzus fasteners. A one handed operation and no tools needed
Any chance of a photo of the ingenious ECR/bahf solution? I think I understand but you know what they say about a photograph...
