Need a source for clevis bolt.

Wondering if anyone know where I can get these at a reasonable price. Maybe it's just me. But $80 seems excessive.

Yes, contact:

He is very good to work with, and prices are much more reasonable.

The guy selling that clevis bolt on ebay is the same guy in florida that sells CSC new old stock parts. His prices are higher than a Cat's A$$. Taking advantage of Supply and demand I guess. There aint all that much demand, but they aint making any more CSC bits.   I would check with Texas Sidecars, they may have some clevis mounts .


Mcmaster-Carr has them also.

Grainger would have it as well. Grainger Industrial Supply - MRO Products, Equipment and Tools

Sorry I haven't replied. I was having log in issue's.


The only thing about the ones from Mcmaster-Carr, and Grainger is they are a lot shorter.


My strut body was trashed anyway so I came up with a work around, so to speak.


My buddy has a hot rod/machine shop. He builds drag car that are $$$$$. He had some struts lying around. They were actually too long.  So we machined off some off each end and was able to make them work. I was then able to use the shorter clevis bolts from Mcmaster-Carr. The neat thing is these have a left and right threads. So I don't have to remove any bolts to adjust them. Just loosen the jamb nuts and use an adjustable wrench on the strut body.


The good thing is the struts were free. I also got all 4 clevis bolts for the price of just 1 csc one.
