Jonmalibuss Posted July 12, 2005 Report Share Posted July 12, 2005 I just recieved the first prototype set of BellTechs new spindles and I must say WOW! Someone did their home work! Would you rather see this at your door? Or see this and wonder what the product looks like? Here is a picture of BellTechs new spindle! Here is McGaughys spindle! The top stud McGaughys uses The top stud BellTech uses which can't unthread from the spindle and much larger diameter, also note the threaded holes which McGaughys doesn't provide they use a self tapping screw into cast iron. I don't have this view of McGaughys spindles right now but if you have seen a set you know what i'm talking about this view is looking at the bottom of the spindle twoards the top. BellTech doesn't weaken their spindles by recessing the surface where the nuts tighten down for the ball jounts. Mcgaughys takes about half of this critical material out creating a point for cracking or just breakage to start. These spindles are actually made to the same specs (as far as spacing from the bearing surface to the caliper mount) as the factory spindes. also look at the over all texture of the castings I painted the Mcgaughys because I (1) wanted to prevent rust (2) the casting was really rough and ugly I may just clear these to prevent rust because they are nice! You make the choice!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
