Brake Scoop Attachment
« on: April 07, 2021, 09:31:27 PM »
I did a search on the scoop attachment, but either there is not a thread, or I am not using the correct wording.

What I would like to know, was any type of strip caulk or sealer used between the scoop and body?

Thanks,

Greek

 Brake scoop? NO no sealer of any kind on them.

Yes, brake scoop. Should have been more specific.  Changed the title.

Thanks Randy!

Were the brake scoops attached with 1/8" x 1/2" long rivets, or 1/8" x 5/8" long rivets.  The 5/8" I have seem too long.

Thanks,

    greekz,
     The 1/8th x 1/2 is correct. 6S477 is an anomaly in that the "lower three" on the driver's side ONLY are 3/16ths. They had never been removed until "I" did for a repaint in 2000. I have NO idea why this would have been done and ONLY mention it in case someone else has seen it. All of the other rivets are "normal 1/8th x 1/2". I have never seen the "anomaly" on any of the others I've owned or looked at/worked on.

I would think that it would have been pretty easy for sizes other than the nominal to get mixed up in whatever container (box, bag, etc.) was being used on the assembly line.  I'd just chalk that up to an anomaly and nothing else.  Stuff happens.

   SAI was not your typical "assembly line" like Ford was so it "was" possible , but still has me scratching my head as there aren't any other 3/16ths rivets used.

Does anyone have the ID and OD dimensions of the washers?  There are in the forward facing position top and bottom outside visible.

Haven't measured them recently and don't have it written down in my notes. ID will fit the rivet the OD is not that much bigger

Typically the two (upper and lower) leading rivets originally

  You can buy them as "rivet washers" at Home depot or other similar stores. It takes some effort to get them in place before squeezing the rivet.

Were these steel or aluminum rivets?

Just thinking that the rivets had to be contained by something.  I wasn't necessarily thinking in terms of a moving assembly line, more like what I'm used to seeing in an aircraft mod center where we "kit" the parts.  Or even a place that has "bench" stock.  Pretty easy for rivers (and other common hardware) to get mixed together if someone isn't paying attention.
