Hi there
I believe they are 5/16 BSW and yes they go through into the crankcase so make sure that your bolts are not too long or they will come up against the flywheel.

Hi Mal and Bob
Yes 5/16 whitworth for the front 3 screws
A problem can occur if helecoils are used !!
Sometimes they can wind inwards with the screws and foul the crank as will too long screws *eek*
"Timesert" thread inserts have a shoulder on the outside to prevent this happening, and are a better solution in my opinion.

As a general rule I use solid inserts ( timecerts etc ) for any place that has to be oil / gas tight and wound inserts ( helicoils ) for blind holes as wire inserts can leak quite badly.
