Front subframe dimensions
« on: December 28, 2018, 08:57:54 PM »
Does any one have a front subframe handy they could measure for me please.
I need the width between chassis mounting holes and the distance between the two studs each side.

Thanks
Paul

Hi Paul,

I have a family member stripping an 8 down and I know he's about to drop the subframe out.

Unfortunately I sold both of mine after I used them for jigs.

I will contact him now, it may take a week or so, let me know if you get the info in the meantime.

If you're referring to the 2 top studs Near the top wishbone.....he's measuring now  :13:

He's a lead design engineer at triumph motorcycles, I hope he doesn't come back with feet and inches lol

It's the 4 studs which drop out of the chassis
