Gear box endplate fastener kit with high tensile bolts and washers
We recommend using this set of high tensile bolts to secure your gearbox end plate.
Yes, in theory you should use studs in aluminium but as long as your threads are OK then these bolts will be fine.
You use more of the thread when you use these bolts so your end plate is better attached.
You gain more surface area by only using a plain washer, always use a small amount of loctite on the threads.
Price: £ 4.26 Ex Vat
Always run a 7x1mm number 3 plug tap into the end plate threads first to clean the threads to remove any debris and make sure there are full threads.
It's very important to remove oil, loose alloy and any old loctite.
Wash out the threads so any bead blast media is fully removed.

Hopefully this kit will not allow the endplate to come loose (when stripping the engine originally I found the gearbox endplate to be quite loose).
Excellent quality and fast service as usual.
I could not get the nuts on the studs to lock up so looked on the net for something better and found these to be much better then the studs would recommend these every time. thanks for the support
Great product which works very well with good clean threads.

Hi Mark, do you still torque these bolts down to the same value as std studs and nuts?
MB Scooters Ltd replied: If the the threads in the casing are perfect then on final assembly you torque a little more, the figure is in the Spanners Manual.
