Banjo bolts and crush washers

I've got an '80 CJ with the original front axle and brakes. Anybody know if the the banjo bolt is 7/16 or 10mm?

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

im damn sure it was standard. So 7/16 sounds about right.

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

They are 7/16 but a strange thread. I think a 24 thread. They are very hard to find. I got mine off a junk yard parts jeep.

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

It may be the fun to find 7/16x24 wich isn't made anymore according to all the parts stores and dealer. Funny thing is all the current reproduction calipers still use it, I got mine from a street rod supplier since Lincolns and some Fords use the same size and pitch.

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

I remember a few months ago, I broke one of my banjo bolts, and it was a complete PITA to replace. After going to about 10 different parts stores, I ended up getting reamed for $22 for a USED one out of a yard.

You can imagine how I felt when I got home and saw it listed in a catalog for $5.95 or so....

I think it was quadratec, but could have been 4wd hardware, I know it was one of the two... I could not find it listed online on their sites, but it was in the catalog, believe it or not...

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

I have two banjo bolts left over from the dana 30 I had in my CJ. I think they are 7/16-24. My CJ was/is a 78! If you need them let me know, and I'll dig them up and you can have them.

Re: Banjo bolts and crush washers

4WD Hardware lists one for the '82 to '86 but nothing for the '80. Late '78 to '81 seem to be strange for some reason. Anybody know if the '82 to '86 calipers fit the '80 brackets?

I can find the 7/16 in both 20 and 24 tpi and the 10mm, I think I'll just order a couple of each and crush washers to go with them. This is for a springtime project anyway, so I've got plenty of time. It may all be rhetorical if I can do the conversion I want.
