What size are the four bolts used to mount front fender to Harley wide glide forks

if i recall Harley use imperial sizes so you wont have an accurate fit if you bung a 10mm spanner on it for example, its like 10.5mm bolt head.

just go down to your nearest tool shop and buy some imperial spanners and find the nearest that fits snugly. although you can buy special one time sockets that use metal pins inside the socket so one size fits all.

I have a rubbing sound coming from the gas dryer drum

The rubbing sound is probably due to worn or missing glides around the dryer opening that the drum rides on. These are usually mounted on a felt strip that is glued to the front panel of the dryer. Remove the front panel and you will see this strip. It is easy to replace and comes in a kit with the glue. Make sure you clean the area after removing the old strip so the glue will adhere properly. If this strip and glides are in good shape, I would look at the bearing or rollers at the back of the drum and check clearance around the drum for rubbing. Hope this will fix ya.

What is the widest size back tire tire for a 2001 widel glide.

I believe it is a 160 stock so you could go 180 using a stock rim, making sure that you check the clearances underneath, especially where the top shock mounts meet the fender if it is going to be close it will be there. If you want to go bigger than that there are a number of kits to put massive tires on the back. Changing a tire to more than 200 WILL change the handling of the bike

Will the gas tank and wheels and fenders off a 2004 fxd dyna glide fit a 2002 fxd dyna super glide.

I believe they could. Possibly not the fenders, but the tank, that's a probability. Check the mounts, and take some measurements of tank length on the bottom.

Westin nerf bars

Send them back and get the extended cab bars. if you have doors behind the passenger and driver seat it is the extended cab. If you don't want to do that, if you know a welder, they can weld them on for you.
