Chrome moly inserts

I am trying to reinforce my penthouse top with the chrome moly inserts. SMB Austin has 2 but I need 4. Apparently, California is out and no more will be made. Does anyone have 2 inserts extra?

Thanks

tom

Re: Chrome moly inserts

Are the new tops different?

Re: Chrome moly inserts

I think the newer (post 1995) arms are stronger (either bigger or reinforced). Mine bend a little too much. If I can't find any other OEM inserts, I may buy what they have and have something fabricated.

In keeping with a theme I am working on, I'll find a way to use duck tape to install them.....

Re: Chrome moly inserts

OK, that don't sound so good... somebody should be able to make up something for ya. Do they stay bent or just flex?

Re: Chrome moly inserts

They stay a little bent, and I'm told it may get worse. SMB assures me they won't break. But as you can imagine, the spring pulling against a bent/bending pipe doesn't have quite the proper operation. I'd like to address it now rather than later.
