Default Bull Bar, Rallye 3003 & Pintle Hook

This has its origin here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...an-2010-a.html (The Bull's day on 1st Jan, 2010)

The new Bull bar & the Hellas were fitted on 27th Jan, '10. A few weeks ago I had picked up a pintle hook from Mayapuri, Delhi. This was fitted yesterday. It practically took the whole day to do the needful.

The step was removed, bumper and the inner casing were removed and two metal plates of 12mm thickness was elctrically welded to the pipe at the rear and holes drilled. After the contraption cooled down, the bumper was refitted and two neat holes were created, thus eliminating the need to cut the bumper. And the pintle hook was bolted on.

Pictures will explain..

Now that makes it a true Scorpio - a scorpion with a tail! Congrats, GD-saab. And when are the old Hellas coming in for treatment?

@gd1418 please use plain+spring washers wherever you are using such hardwares(for heavy duty applications) this will help distribute the forces generated during drawbar pull to a greater area thereby reducing induced stresses, in short less chances of failure.what is the bolt specification? is it M12x1.5 or is it BSW?

@SPIKE: This has totally gone above my head. But I've understood this much that you are enquiring about the holding strength of the Pintle Hook mount.

Now the hook is designed to pull a load of 5 ton, hence I'm sure the bolts that came with it can take that stress. In a regular 4x4 Scorpio, a pintle ball hook is provided by the company designed to take a load of 3+ ton. That is mounted on a plate that is welded to the pipe running at the back hidden by the bumpers and the pipe in turn is welded to the chasis.

In my case two iron plates of 12mm thickness have been electrically welded with each other and then welded to the pipe and to the mount on which originally the step was bolted. Holes were drilled and the hook fitted. The welder told me that it may shear off but the welding won't give way.
