Engine bolts and cover screws
« on: February 14, 2018, 09:29:06 AM »
Morning all,

I'm starting to reassemble my 'basket case' 400 engine and it appears to be missing a few of the flanged M6 bolts for the cam cover (I'm in need of 5x28mm, 6x32mm, 3x40mm and 5x60mm.)  I would also like to replace the stainless cap head bolts with the original pan head screws for the engine covers (looking for 5x35mm, 3x40mm, 2x55mm and 2x60mm) - does anyone have either engine bolts or pan head screws kicking around that they would be willing to part with please ? 

Many thanks in advance for any help !!

Andy

Can't help you with the bolts / screws you need Andy as mine were all non original so so I ditched them but I got an engine casing bolt kit from Yamiya. It doesn't include the sump bolts but includes all other casing bolts.
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

Most of them are Honda bolts anyway Andy. Works out a lot cheaper buying the kit instead of individually. Here is the link

If no luck PM me as I have buckets of bolts lying around and I've probably got all the flanged bolts, the screws I threw away as I hated them. Where they are isn't the best place so I only look if there's a need.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it
