Riveted or not . My old ones were, the pads I have didn't come with rivets .

George, the 26-27 cowl tank straps were riveted and if care is taken when removing the old pads, you may be able to peen the old rivets down on the new pads. I think most people nowadays, glue the pads on. I'd use rubber cement or silicone for ease of replacing later, should that be necessary.

I had some rivets left over from replacing brake lining on my Improved Car brakes, so I just used those to attach some rubber strips to the straps. Works nicely.

Transmission band lining rivets worked well for this application.

Ok which side should go against the tank. ??
Rolled side or flat side ??

Looks to me like the metal strap should nestle in between the rolled edges, so the pad can't move away and leave metal-to-metal contact.

Make sense?

Peter,seems logical but these pads will be riveted to the strap.

George, I've got a pair of straps that I bought from Bob Bergstadt in Rockford. They still have the original rubber riveted to the metal and the rubber is still pliable enough to use. The flat side of the rubber goes against the tank; rolled edge side with channel, goes to the straps.

Thanks Pete and Terry.
