Looking for a couple nuts and bolts...

Post by Mike_B_SVT » 22 May 2018, 12:37

Hey Gang,

I'm looking for two valve cover bolts to replace the hardware store bolts that are installed on my throttle cable bracket.
~ my understanding is that they originally used the same style bolts found on valve covers. (example pic below)

I'm also looking for a few of the correct style nuts that were used to hold the Master Cylinder onto the Brake Booster. I believe they would have been the kinda "squashed" locking-style shoulder nuts, with some sort of markings on them. But I could be wrong about that. Not sure if they would have also had a lock washer or not. (example pic below)

They don't have to be all super shiney with nice coatings or anything like that, just nothing horribly rusty.

Please message me if you have a few in your screw bin that you could part with.

Thanks!

Mike B.

The nut's called a pinch nut.

I have that type of pinch nut (your picture) in a larger size
This is the type I have that fits the booster

I’ve purchased the valve cove bolts like the one you have , I believe these bolts are also correct.











Looking to buy an Eliminator, I have two great candidates to choose from!

Are you fussy about the marking on the valve cover bolts? (i.e you want the circle B)

Truthfully, I hadn't thought about the markings. Mostly I want correct appearing bolts that don't scream "hello, I came from Ace!" :-)

Well you should have a AMK catalog! page 48 starts with lock & flange nuts. Not sure on the exact correct, as there is no callout just the 5 nuts holding booster to body.
The bolts will be kit#F339 w/10 bolts. SPL HX SPLIT SEMS.

A great source is the book - AMK's guide to Ford fasteners. Most locking style nuts use the inventors name or company. Crown lock, Stover lock, Hex cone lock, Nyloc, ect.

You really need to move closer!

Check the ones you have, see if they all have the same markings, then we can check the bucket o bolts & try to match it up.

Looks like I have a mix of valve cover bolts, with most of them being #1 (left-most) BH, and a few being #4 "F"
