#1 Radius Arm Cup Location

Post by Jagophile » Mon Jun 29, 2020 12:04 am

I've finally rounded the corner on the restoration of my 1968 E-Type 2+2 and I'm beginning reassembly. The radius arms were very rusted and came out arm, cup, mounting plate and all. I have no reference point as to where the mounting cups are positioned for reattachment on the body and I can't find any drawings of where they go. Can anyone provide either locating dimensions or an alternate method to get them in the right position? I've been searching for days, "I've got blisters on my fingers".
Thanks, Jeff

If you plan to replace that area of the floor you can get the floor section with the cups installed.

We have one here I've just measured and it's 1" 3/16 from mount plate to cross member and 4" 1/16 out ward to the sill lip. hope that makes sense.
