    Icon7 R12 - 18 - 25 - Fuego Strut Top Rubbers

    Numbers courtesy of Simon's assistance:

    77 00 557 857
    77 00 558 160


    Quick quessie - are these still sold here by the usual offenders, or are they best sourced from Turkey?

    I know that Jo used poly in his Fuego, but I can't find a close match in the Whiteline catalogue.

    Thanks, Adam.

    Yea. I used poly in mine too.
    You should be able to match it with another eye bush.
    The 25 has a thicker strut.

    Pretty sure the 25 ones I have in my stash, are 10mm threads. Isn't that the same as a Fuego?

    I thought the step up in ram shaft diameter (to approx. 14mm) started where the lower retaining cup stops on the shaft.

    Hmmm. It could be that the bush had a wider base and that required the need for a bigger hole... I remember drilling the hole larger in my old Fuego and think the pin was llonger with a bigger bush.

    I dont know what the fuss is.
    Just grab anything of the shelf and use it.
    It is a non critical bush.
    The decision might be to use or not use a crush tube.
    I never bothered with them.

    I'm not sure how close your metaphorical "shelf" may be in this instance. Or whether it's going to suffer regional pricing variation (as in, outright robbery ) plus long delays in supply.

    The 10mm diameter section looks to be about 80-85mm from shoulder to tip.

    Too much info.

    Seriously, grab a round thing with a hole and shove it on between two massive washers.
    I'd be BS'ing you if I said I ever notice any difference between any bush (rubber/urathane/old/new) apart from ones that were fully shagged.

    It gets the bejezus squished out of it anyway once you tighten it up so whatever shape it was before is only a temporary state of being.

    It is worth noting the characteristics of urethane though if you use that material.
    Unlike rubber which is compressible, urethane is not and behaves like a liquid, squishing out the path of least resistance when compressed.
    It is possible with the wrong orientation of the washer to make the pathway of squish rather miniscule. You want to avoid that in a a crush situation as once it cannot squish any more it behaves like a solid.

    I've got my mitts on some NOS bushes courtesy of M. Cristophe Herit, will measure them up and post the findings once arrived, hopefully a crossreference too.
