I believe most of the wet bolt kit you might purchase from Morryde comes from Dexter.

Charlie (8.1al) is correct that Dexter makes the wet bolt kits. It is their product however, MorRyde does install them as well as Dexter. Not sure why Dexter would refer to Mor/Ryde when they actually installed some kits at the most recent Fall Rally in Goshen.

We had the kits installed at Mor/Ryde and they do a good job with fitting in rather than out.

I agree with Jay, Rich and others that 60 is the number for the U-bolt adjustment.

Ben Wiginton at Mor/Ryde is the go to person.

When the wet bolts are being installed, it is NOT a good idea to pound on the head
where the grease nipple (zerk) fitting screws in. When I had mine installed the young
technie was having some trouble and he did admit he had not done this before. I was a
Chief Engineer in the Navy and I suggested that he take a smaller socket that would rest
firmly against the head of the bolt and drive it in that way. Plan B is to use a piece of
hardwood or a brass drift against the head of the bolt WITHOUT the zerk fitting in place.
Lastly it is important to ensure that grease passage in the side of the bolt be placed at
the 3 or 9 o'clock position to ensure that the grease will enter the passage between the wet bolt and the bronze bushings. Sometimes when we are sitting outside in the afternoon, and someone is backing their fifth into place, you can always tell the rigs that don't have the
wet bolts installed, they are the squeakers.
