2 A question about: Gas Spring for rodkicker
Hi , can anyone confirm that this kit shown includes all 3 items in the photo shown , Gas Strut, Spacer Tube and End Cap. Item 42215
All of these 3 items are included.
Yes it does - but you will need 2 end caps, don’t discard the old ends as you need to use one.. The kit would be better if it included 2 ends.... Also use some duralac paste or similar when screwing on the cap ends..
Thanks Denis, your feedback is much appreciated . In respect to the end caps you mention , not sure what you mean on this one . Just to put you in the picture on this one , I purchased a brand new Rodkicker model 20 last week from SVB but never ordered the Gas Strut option, now I have decided that was a bad move and will fit this option . Thanks Gordon
The cap ends screw onto both ends of the gas strut - so you end up with the strut with a flat ‘plate’ on both ends.. One will go against the spacer ( comes in the kit ) and the other end goes against the Alu sleeve - So you need 2 end caps ... I had allot of difficulty with my rodkicker selection and I found the guy in svb excellent - maybe call them ? Or try to pm me - not sure how !
Thanks you very much Denis, your help is much appreciated. I have already ordered the Gas Kit so once it arrives im sure I'll be able to source something . Thanks Gordon
