Rear fender mounting bolt?

#1

Post by craig60pan » Sun Nov 08, 2009 5:59 pm

Just put the rear fender back on the 51 and had one hole without a bolt/nut.
Not sure if it was missing or just never supposed to be there. Anyone shed any light on this, the parts books I have don't have anything.
They show the hole in the frame and the fender but nothing to attach them
Thanks

Yes, there's a bolt there. I bought the Colony fender mounting hardware kit, which includes everything needed to mount the fender. That lower bolt is one of those oval-heads, with the countersunk head, straight-slot for a screwdriver, p/n 2404 as seen with the oil tank. However, in my book, when I go to the section in the back on bolts, I don't find a 2404. Must be a typo.

A light came on when I read your post.
I remembered a screw I had (Phillips head 3/4 in long ,5/16x24) that I was not sure where it came from but it was in with the frame/fender stuff.
For some reason I did not bag and tag it when I removed it.
My first thought was that it was to attach the fender to the battery tray and I was missing the other one.
But the replacement screws I got from Clete at Old Dudes were were straight slot, not Phillips, so I just assumed that it was just another "creative solution" a previous owner came up with.
Problem solved, thanks

CJ, I'm pretty sure that the "W" is the code for cad plate, same part different finish

what always amuses me is the dimension 27/32", would a 7/8" be just TOO long for that application?

That makes sense as the 2404b appears to be for the park version
Not sure where I got the W for the 2404 part as what I have is the B version
I am curious what the rational was for using W and B for cad and park designations
Unless is was "kind of white" vs "kind of black color"
