Trem HD transom wheels retaining pin size.

Can anyone with Trem HD wheels... and an accurate micrometer... tell me the exact diameter of the leg-to-bracket retaining pins.

I've misplaced my originals. I do have backup spares but an 8mm (measures 7.95) is so tight it's really hard to click the leg into the up/down posn and the next size down in my collection (a 6mm that measures 5.85) leaves them too loose.

Hi David, I don't have Trems' but when pins are around this size 7-8mm I've found they are normally imperial 5/16" a pretty common standard:

5/16 pin (detent, clevis) | eBay

I use the Demon Tweeks type with paracord between - drop one and no issue:

Do you know the length of the clevis bolt itself? Someone stole mine at the weekend, having to restock on boat parts!
