Default Metric screw site

I know this isnt a "How to " but it will really help out some of you guys when you want to change out your engine hardware to stainless or cant seem to find any Metric hardware.I have dealt with this company several times when looking for metric hardware for my Mustang and they have Top Notch service.

Hope this will help some of you guys/gals here as it did/does me.
Thanks,
Chris

Another good place to get hard to find stuff is McMASTER-CARR

McMaster-Carr

I use them all the time for odd bolts on cars.

Default hardware

I've replaced Cam holder bolts, Carb float bowl screws, etc... And Ace Hardware has ALWAYS had exactly what I've needed.

Just be cautious to make sure the grade of the bold is aqueduct. A lot of hardware store metrics seem to be grade 2 (general fastener strength) which isn't suitable for high load parts (motor/suspension/etc).

Of course. Ace offers various grade hardware. And I've also checked with the local Honda dealership first before going elsewhere for parts.

Good deal, just raising a caution flag in case you or someone else hadn't thought of it. Don't need any motors falling out ;-P
