    Tinmann, I recently installed a toothbar from Carvers on my LA302 bucket. Perhaps the attached picture will illustrate where to measure.

    <font color=blue>screwed up my measurements and the toothbar was about 3/4 inches shorter than I needed</font color=blue>

    Gosh, Terry, how'd you screw up like that?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img] I did exactly the opposite, had mine cut down a bit, but measured just a tiny bit off, and now I guess you could say it's a "perfect" fit; so darned tight I have to use a hammer to get it on or off.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Sams,

    This thread is timely. Originally, I called Carver for a toothbar. They called back quickly and wanted me to measure the inside of my bucket. But I remembered a thread here that suggested the bucket lip measurement was equally important.

    I was concerned that lip size didn't appear to be an issue. So, I then called John Millers' boys (Mark at K.C. Canary-Fultonville, Inc.) and they knew my bucket and said they'd measure it for me.

    I received my bar on valentines day, 6 days after ordering. I just test mounted it yesterday afternoon. I used a big hammer to get the tooth bar on and it is so solidly mounted, because of the lip "fit", I think I could actually do things without bolts! It fits my bucket lip perfectly, but the inner bold mounts have about 1/2 inch play. I'll shim this in with some extra washers.

    I paid 260.00 and 14.90 shipping.

    Wal, Thanks for the pictures for the measurements. You can see the "indent" that I was refering to in the bucket that you have. Guess they don't matter by the pictures. I will measure outside of them.

    Bird,

    I guess my cypering was a little off that day!! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img] One of those senior moments we encounter now and then.... a little touch of "oldtimers" disease.... other epithets probably exist - but unknown or forgotten at this time. Well, there I go again. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I planned on giving myself a little breathing room by subtracting off an 1/8" per side (1/4" total) and, well, the rest is history.... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Terry, you measure too short and I measure too long. Reckon if we got together we could get it right?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Those senior moments seem to be coming closer together for me.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Bird,

    True.... True..... sad but true. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/sad.gif[/img]

    However, at least we can keep our sense of humor about it. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    the cutting edge (lip) is what actually takes the stress when digging or using toothbar. the bolts just basically hold it there.
