I’d posted a few weeks ago that I had a problem with the bolts on the Knurled Hose Fittings (KHF) hitting the drive wheel in the foot. Well I finally got around to cutting down the nuts and at the same time making some small nuts for the battery boxes.
For the feet I simply cut the nuts in half and filed them down. Here’s a before and after shot
At first I tried to cut the nuts with a hand saw, but it was slow going so I switched to the dremel
Here they are attached to the foot with the expandable rubber plugs which hold the hose in place
I also had to adjust the holes in the feet to get the foot strip to line up properly. I just used a hand file to remove some material
For the battery boxes I had to grind down the nuts to fit into the tight space.
Nice and snug fit
