    Questions on the 1995 SLT 750 engine

    Hi, I am a new poster but joined a short while back, I recently purchased a 1995 SLT 750, the guy didn't know much about it but it had a hole in the rear piston, they took the rear cylinder & piston off and tossed it I guess, anyway they had another cylinder and head that went with it however the head is labeled #1 instead of #3, this is probably a stupid question but they all look alike to me , am I going to have to get another cylinder and head? They also lost all of the nuts for the heads and the one cylinder, are these a special grade (8 or 5) or can I just pick them up at the fastener store, I have seen them on ebay but they seem pretty high for just a few studs and nuts. I have gone over the site but haven't seen anything written on this subject or maybe I just missed it.
    This site is awsome, there is a lot of information here and it is going to help a lot.
    Thanks in advance for the feedback.

    Welcome to the Hulk. The numbers are just what casting mold it came from all cylinders and heads are interchangeable.

    Thanks beerdart,
    I was really hoping that was the case, any ideas on the studs and nuts?

    You need the studs too?

    See if John Zigler can help you out.

    If not check the classifieds for anyone parting a ski cheap.

    You can use the studs and nuts from any 650/750/780 engine.


    If you try the hardware store, it's going to be tough. Thy're a SS metric bolt and nut. Not very common in most hardware stores, and the studs willl be a difficult length to find.

    Hey thanks xlnt89,
    Ya they lost all of the head nuts, cylinder and head studs for the rear cylinder, I was wondering if they were stainless, there is some rust on them so I didn't think they were stainless, I guess that is why they are so high on ebay....

    I have found quite a bit of SS hardware in metric sizes at a Sears Hardware store if you have one locally....... They even had high grade (10.9) metric bolts for my flywheel puller.....3 other local stores including automotive stores did not......

    They're not a real high grade of SS. If they weren't SS though, they would rust very quickly.

    People on Ebay are way high on prices. Call John.

    You are correct. But they will not have the studs he needs. And they use a "flanged" nut, again, something Sears will not have. I guess you can use a washer with a standard nut though.

    Thanks again, do you have an email address or other contact info, email would probably work the best as I am on the west coast and from what I have seen most of the people here are further east.
