Re: Looking for a hard to find bolt

said by Subaru:

Maybe I'm searching wong on McMaster carr but I can't find this bolt..

M12 x1.25 17 mm

Are you sure the pitch is 1.25mm? All of the M12 hardware I'm finding, including on your later post is 1.75 pitch. I'm confused.

before I order I'm sure nether Lowes or Home depot

You'll never know until you go to either one, I think Home depot will have a better supply of bolts on hand!

it is 1.25mm in pitch

I have to check the bolt again in person I hope it shows the grade marking on it because a grade 10.9 looked a bit thin too.

Why not just get a slightly larger, easy to find bolt and tap the nut for the new size and thread pitch?

Can you work with a 20mm?

Thats' a built in lockwasher you can replace that type of bolt with a standard bolt plus a standard lockwasher.

Then use a bolt with a washer, it is common for assembly line purposes to use less parts that can be misplaced and combining a bolt with a washer is one of those methods of speeding up the assembly process.

Find the bolt you need and combine it with a washer and you have the same thing just two parts to loose versus one.

It would have to be a nut on the other end because I don't trust it.. mind you this is a bolt that spec to about 103 Ft-lbs I rather trust a nut on the inside instead of just the bolt it's self.

funny thing was I was looking at some bolts I for sure can't use grade 8 but I think 10.9 is more like it.. speaking of that let me go out now to see if the bolt has a marking on it.

I assume metric bolts marked with a large 8 means grade 8? Most findings show it marked as like 8.8 OR marked with lines.

A grade 8 bolt for a transmission support is more than enough and if you have room, put a lock nut on it.

M12x1.25 is the fine thread for that size and is used where loosening caused by vibration is a concern. Coarse threads are used where strength is the over riding concern.

If you must avoid the dealer at all costs, then I hate to say it, but the pig has got it.

Go to the wreckers and get a bucket full of bolts.

You can try this company, »www.metricmcc.com/, they are in Elmsford, NY. When I was a mechanic for Porsche, we used them all the time for hard to find items such as stretch bolts for VW heads and so on.
