Engine and gearbox plate bolts
« on: 05.10. 2018 23:13 »
Anyone know of where I can get these in stainless? Everywhere I’ve checked has the earlier version with studs.

 I want to say motalia had them, but that was a few years ago.

Got the studs from them some 7 years ago and never fitted them. They still only do studs.

Did request CPC Engineering to make me a set, after a year gave up with them and still haven’t heard anything from them.

G'day bd.
Why not turn the studs into bolts. Put a nut on one end with red loctite and a couple of center pops on the end between the nut and stud thread.

Not original look and doesn’t have a smooth head like a bolt would have

 I've fairly much concluded that apart from cover screws, Stainless Steel bolts and studs is fairly pointless except in some situations, especially when the studs screw into the cases (obviously not the 'case' here-punavoidable)...Stainless nuts on (eg.) nickle (or other) plated studs I think is better

G'day bd.
Sorry mate, I read now it's only the BOLTS you want in SS. Is that correct?
The parts book list them all as studs but the Stainless Bits page http://stainlessbits.com/link12.html list 4 of the 8 as bolts  *dunno*
#1 65-4182 stud 3/8 x 3-7/8" SSB list bolt
#7 42-4077 stud 7/16 x 4-1/4"
#8 27-5683 stud 3/8 x 4-1/8"
#13 65-4182 stud 3/8 x 3-7/8" SSB list bolt
#29 27-5690 stud 3/8 x 6-1/4" SSB list as bolt
#34 67-0350 stud 5/16 x 3-12"
#35 27-6276 stud 3/8 x 8"
#38 66-4163 stud 3/8 x 4-3/8" SSB list as bolt
Still think you could do the studs but weld/grind/polish the fixed nut end.
Like anything, if you can't find/buy it, make it.

Or commit the greatest sin of all and put metric threaded bar with Nylocs on.  This is what I did when I lost four nuts and a stud on a trip out and needed a quick fix! *eek* :o *dunno* ;D *whistle* *beer*

TBH, Berger, if they actually stay in, I'd take the risk of them getting a bit stuck.  They'll only be in for as long as I can get round to sorting it mate - temp fix, honest. *whistle*
