Hi,

I'm about to order some stainless parts for my BSA.

But I can not find the data (lenght, diameter, TPI and head type) of the 4 screws and nuts that keep the round tank badges to the clips on a Rocket Gold Star tank.

I think that i need some countersunk 6BA screws, but how long?


Do some of You know the data?

Hi Fox,

The information that I have shows the nuts to be part number 42-8034 which have a 5BA thread. The screws are part number 65-8317 and are 5BA X 1/4 inch (6mm) long.

Beezageezauk.
