lock plate, lock washer
Posted 08 April 2008 - 08:28 PM
back brakes were acting up so removed the rear axle nut and drum and had a look.
in the process i noticed the lock plate and lock washer which slide onto the keyed axle/spindle before the nut were both wore out and had no "nub" left to hold them in place.
does anyone know where i can order these 2 parts as i can find no one who can get them and i assume i'll lose a wheel if they dont function.
thanks in advance,

got one off a 92 or 93 loyale at the j.y.
outside of the car looked rough but the dash, seats, visors and most of the interior was in unbelievable condition.
interior was that bluish-grey color in case anyone close was interested.

I do not have my 81 two wheel drive hatchback anymore, but I butchered up the rear bearings as I had overtightened them while doing the rear brakes and drove all the way to Pittsburgh from Atlanta. On the way it developed a howl from the rear wheels and I had to get both bearings replaced in Pittsburgh.
By the way, I have brand new lock plate washers that I purchased as spares for my 81 2-door hatch 2WD years ago (just need to find them). I can send two to you for $5 total, includes shipping. You do not even have to pay me. Just make a donation to USMB after you have received these. Make sure the 81 washers will work for you. Send me a PM if interested and I will hunt these down.

i actually took the lock washer and and lock plate off both sides of the junker so i have a spare now( I'm a firm believer in spare parts)
but i'm sure someone will be needing them.
i've almost had to total cars over simple little parts that were hard to find in the past so again thanks for the offer.

just to add to this post, the axle nuts and related cone and flat washers are interchangeable between any ea81 and ea82, front and rear. 1980-1994 dl, gl, loyale, xt, rx, gl-10 (yup that would be everything with a 36mm axle nut)
With the exception of 2wd rear wheels. Which is the topic of this thread.
They use a totally different setup. More akin to old RWD front wheel bearings.
