I'm in stalemate till I get some bolt  :cry:

Pete126:
I'm sure you or some friends have some old metric bolts hanging about find one that screws into the block easy by hand then take it to a hardware store to get the correct pitch of threaded bar + nuts (B&Q) cut the bar oversize but remember to add a thin washer and nut to the length , cut off the excess leaving 2 threads proud of the nut.

126redbomb:
So the bolts are not stretch bolts

Pete126:
NO the three nuts/bolts (Red Arrows) just nip the gasket up to stop oil leaks, hand tight or torque to 4 DNm
