    Timing plate screws

    Well big thanks to Al and Casey for helping me figure out my problem with my 96 SL900

    The screws that hold the timing plate (not sure what to call it) to the flywheel were in the bottom of my flywheel cover. They are mangled. I am having a really hard time finding the right screws to replace them at my local hardware stores. If anybody has some laying around, I'd love to buy them from you.

    2 questions.

    1. I cannot tell what the thread length is supposed to be. Al measured some of his while we were on the phone and said that the length he measured was 10mm with a 4mm head. I bought some 10mm and 12mm screws from the store and the 10mm were way too short and the 12mm just barely touched the hole. Question is, I have a 96 SL900 and I do not want to buy and install a screw that is too long that hits the stator. Can anybody help me with the screw length?

    2. The timing plate is somewhat difficult to rotate. I had to stick a pick into the holes and then pry them into position...is this normal? Is that timing plate supposed to rotate freely?

    Thanks all.

    Are you referring to the stator,like this?
    If so, they do fit tight for location,as the flywheel and magnets spin around it at close tolerance. And if you talking about the screws that hold this there is nothing that will get hurt unless you tighten too long of screw a break the case.

    I'm talking about the 2 screws that hold the magnet assbly to the flywheel. Not sure what to call the magnets thing, but as part of setting the timing of the engine, you are supposed to loosen these two screws on the flywheel, rotate this magnet plate that you cannot see behind the flywheel...super hard to explain. I even tried to pull up the image on partsland.com but they don't even list it.
