Re: Oil Filter Cover - Broken Screw
I still have several sets available. I did not get them from McMaster Carr, but from Bossard, one of the largest European metric suppliers. They are Dacromet coated, class 12.9, and will not strip tightened to the specified torque like the stock class 8.8's may and have. Will withstand considerably more torque than specified. And no, it will not strip the aluminum case unless you REALLY Gorrilla them.
If anyone wants some, I have sold a LOT of them (over 200 sets) three screws with 4 washers, $5 for one set mailed, $3 for each additional set mailed at the same time.
I include an extra washer, because it is not a standard hardware store washer, smaller O.D. matching the O.D. of the stock, but not attached like stock, so possible to loose one.
