I've lost the bolt that secures the torque tube to the shroud. Can someone tell me what size it is?

The parts manual (Group 1 Engine, Illustration 5, page 1-32) doesn't show it. Clearly I'm looking in the wrong place.

N 10 390 1
Bolt, hex hd. BM 8 x 95

If you're using the Parts Book from this site - it's on page 122, Illustration A12, 1-90. Part #4 in the diagram.

In the event you've also lost the washer - it's a relatively thick washer. I probably have one if you need it - just let me know.

That's what, almost 3.5 inches long? Just thinking it might make it easier to search the bolt bin for. Wink

Thanks! I was just at ACE HW and picked up a 90mm. It will be a little short.

Next time I'm in town I'll get a 95 and suitable washer.

The washer is 4mm thick and 23.5mm OD in case you need to go looking for one.
