Title: Screw thread of the tacho cable mounting plate please...
Post by: t20racerman on 02.10. 2017 18:22
Hi there

I've got an inner timing case type tacho drive, and the two small, very course thread bolts that hold the cable mounting bracket on are very short. Could anyone please let me know what the thread is as I'd like some new ones?

The ones fitted are hex head too, and there's very little room for a socket or spanner to tighten them up, which adds to the problem.

Thanks
Adrian

Thread is 3/16 x 24 tpi BSW.

I use  socket cap screws in this location.

Thank you for that. Cap heads are exactly what I need.  *smile*
