Need 4 of said bolts to bolt my 4AGE to my engine stand and commence the 4AGTE build.

If any has any kicking around that they don't need i'd really appreciate them.

Or alternatively, if anyone knows the size/pitch I can probably find an alternative.

Cheers fellas :thumbsup:

M10 x 1.50? Think thats right.

I'm almost certain there a metric fine pitch. 1.25 maybe, there mot as fine as 1.00 if my memory serve me right.

The higher the number the finer the thread.

Standard M10 bolts are 1.25 TP thread pitch
I think the jap ones are mostly one size up when they are finer hence 1.5 TP.

Scratch that I'm wrong....reference (http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/metric-threads-d_777.html)

Cheers chaps. If i can go to B&Q and get the 4 bolts tomorrow that would be easier than ordering off MrT. I can have some play time tomorrow too :D

So I need M10 x 1.25 pitch?

A bit of awkward this. If you work with bolts everyday you can tell straight away, just by looking at them, if there stock pitch or not.

Standard metric bolts are as follows:

m4 is 0.7
m5 is 0.8
m6 is 1.0
m8 is 1.25
m10 is 1.5

Any devation from this makes them a little special. The figures are in mm's, so one full turn of the nut would move it along the bolts axis. e.g 1 full turn of a m6 would move the nut 1.0mm along the threads length.

Anyway, I doubt weather B&Q would have anything other than the standard metric stuff, but you might be lucky.
If you have a bolt out of the box, just put a rule against the thread and measure the distance of 10 thread pitches and divide by 10 to give you the figure you need. hope some of that helps.
