    Flywheel bolts

    can anyone give me the thread dia, pitch, and length on the flywheel bolts... and possibly any markings on the heads?

    I don't have your answers, but if you are upgrading the original 04/05 bolts I would buy them from the online store here as those are stretch bolts, and I would'nt take a chance on something else.

    I work for a fastener distributor. Have been in the nut, bolt, and washer business for years now... I have a wealth of fastener knowledge.

    I can tell what it is if I get a nice picture of one and the head markings.



    So what I am trying to say is.... Don't worry, I know what I am doing when it comes to bolts.... No risks will be taken.

    But thanks for the heads up OBJ.

    I can look at the pictures I took when I swapped last year, but by the time I get home tonight to check you will have your answer from someone else...

    When I did my swap I did one bolt at a time, with red locktite...

    Meanwhile, not to hijack your thread, but any news on the shimmy's...and the trailer stuff?

    Danny PM sent on that other stuff.


    I am going to try to get one of my supplier to put a nylon locking patch on the bolts before I install them....

    Dude... that's odd.... I can tell my looking at the pics on the online store that they are not stainless and if yours says A2-70 on top they are stainless.

    The ones in the store are marked 10.9 which is closer to a Grade 8 inch standard bolt. A2-70 is common grade 18-8 stainless which, in strength, comes in between Grade 2 and 5.

    A2-70 Tensile = approx 101,500 PSI
    Grade 10.9 Tensile = approx 155,100 PSI.

    Just an FYI

    The '04s were especially likely to fail. They were changed in '05 and later... Ron

    Yeah... that's why i am looking into this... I have an 04 with 200+ hours and they have never been changed, but I am still running stock ECU.

    No doubt mine were the stock ones from a stock 04 RXP I replaced them with ARP ones a while back.
