Turnbuckle sizes

Postby cummings » Fri Dec 02, 2016 10:57 am

I'm in need of a few turnbuckles to replace mine. On the side of the body it says 1/4. I've ordered some turnbuckles and they're too small, or too big. What size is the OEM turnbuckle? Where could I find some?

I discovered it is a 1/4 X 28 pin. The 1/4 turnbuckles I ordered turned out to have metric pins. Go figure...

A trip to Westlakes hardware with an old, and new, turnbuckle proved my new one was metric.

I have 1/4 inch turnbuckles on my C22.
