AMX Front Spindle... Which Way Is Up?
01/26/10 at 03:42:24
 
I'm not sure how the spindle on my AMX should be oriented when installed. All the holes are equal distance from each other and it's got two mounting holes with a larger footprint than the other two.
 
Which way is up?
 
Thanks,
-Steve-

All the ones I've seen have the wider part on the top. The holes are not equal on any of the ones I have. Side to side is different than top to bottom. Search for the lowering plate drawing and it will show the dimensions.

All the spindles I have ever measured had holes that 2.500" center-to-center on the side-to-side holes and 2.600" c-to-c on the up and down holes.

I am pretty sure the wide is the top, been a bit since I took one of those apart. SH
