Re: Idler Arm install on 1966 Galaxie
DesertXL & Mike, thank you for your replies.
From what I understand, these retainer nuts are kind of specific. I don't know if they are used elsewhere on the car, but they were shared on 1967-69 Thunderbirds. There are holes in the frame where you slide them in, then they "clip" into place so that the nut sets in the bolt hole. Then you can bolt the idler arm to the frame.
They should look similar to the one in the pictures I've attached.
If either of you or anyone else on the board has a 1965-68 Galaxie/full size parts car ... a 1967-69 Thunderbird ... or knows someone with either who might be able to spare them, I’d be GRATEFUL!!
