Default Re: replacement engine hardware

A couple of rotations of the socket head screws head on the grinding wheel of a bench grinder or hand held 4" - 4 1/2" disc grinder and the size will be just right, this is how I fitted all of mine on my engines, some unground bolts fit fine and others were too big, the grinding is just slight and they will work great, if you want them black or silver again grind them, and then spray them with a shot of brake cleaner then just shoot a coat of the color spray paint you wish and BAM.......!

I didn't paint mine because the ground part is hidden after they are installed, but one could if they wish of coarse.
