Hi all,

I would like to be sure.
Should I get 585 or 593 endlinks for my 5.2 millions 1665?

Thanks!

I do already have 580 on my SD and they are too small.

With 580, you can see that height of the endlink is much smaller than lugs one :

Err...585 ELs are too hard to get...n costly.

All it takes is a little adjustment...
to fit 580 EL onto 1665...equally nice.





Best regards

Do you slightly open the endlinks to get closer to the top of the lugs?
Or...?

...hard to get?

I already went to my Rolex AD, asked for 580 endlinks, gave Frs 40 and left with them in hands.
Today I just ordered my 585 ones.

Never understood why everybody selle these endlinks for $$$$ and says it is hard to get...
