Are the rivets that hold the fingers to the drive plate standard off the shelf rivets, or are they made of a different material? Has anyone used a 12 pt shoulder bolt or an Allen type bolt to mount the drive plate?
I replaced some once. The venders sell them but as I recall they are different size ,but not to pricey.
I know the venders have them. I didn't want to pay postage for just the 3 rivets if I could get them here in town. I should add, it's for a 1926-27 style driving plate.
They are not a standard rivit and we manufacture them. Chaffin's
The allen screw might work for the bolt but would need to be drilled for safety wire.
