Seat Adjuster Pins?

Postby Clark in AZ » Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:14 pm

Ok, so how do you attach the keepers for the seat adjuster pins? Is there supposed to be a hole in the T pin? I don't get it...

Thanks,
Clark

You drill a hole in the pin near the bottom of the exposed part when it is engaged in your track, then insert a cotter pin so the spring pushes down on it. Off center helps clear the seat frame that it is mounted in.

Just be careful to allow some clearance so they dont hang up on the seat structure when you are done.
