I have noticed that one of my engine crank case bolts is missing. It's one of the larger ones that sit's just above the push rod tube on a 1600 tp engine. It takes a 17mm socket but I can't seem to be able to buy one. I've tried M10 nuts with all combinations of threads but nothing fits! :mad:


Has anyone got one of these kicking around or maybe advise where I can get one. I tried all the traders at Vanfest, including the breakers but drew a blank.

Many thanks

i presume you mean 1 of the 6 large nuts that holds the case together? I think its an M12? try and M12 nut?im sure its only standard nut with a washer behind it.

but small headed type hence 17mm socket required.
correct, but you don't need to use the small headed ones, standard 19 mm A/F M12 thread nuts will work on the bottom 3 studs, (on the top 3 they will catch on the tinware).

That's why the bloody M10's didn't fit then!!!


"correct, but you don't need to use the small headed ones, standard 19 mm A/F M12 thread nuts will work on the bottom 3 studs, (on the top 3 they will catch on the tinware)."

Sorry Laurence Fletcher, you've lost me there. There are four bolts in a row and it's the one nearest the gearbox. From memory, it sit's outside the tinware, but I might be wrong.

Thanks for all the help

There are only 6 of those M12 studs & nuts on the case, 3 along the top, (you can't see them because the tinware hides them), and 3 in a row along the bottom of the Cylinder Barrels, above the level of the pushrod tubes. There's another stud & nut, slightly below that line, right next to the M12 stud at the gearbox end, but this one is a M8 thread, and has a different torque setting. Hope that helps.
