Thought about it but there was nothin close.. Between a 7&8mm and what ever corresponding fraction size.. Would have to wallow out the pipe but even that's not really thick.

That was my next step. I just got the whole front end reassembled so pulling the rad was not what I was looking forward to doing. Hopefully I'll hear back from him and get that one.

Well, they didn't invent a thread so it must have an equivalent bolt. It's tough to find unless you have a large selection of bolts though.

I worked at that fastenal branch that supplies hardware to Disney and Universal.. I've seen a lot of bolts, my main job was sourcing the random *** parts that they needed. I promise you I pulled all the stops on my search. Pulled strings, sent pics etc etc etc. no where!
