Does anyone know a source for 12-32 nuts and 8-36 screws?
Google "8-36 screw" and you will find many many sources. Grainger - Fastenal, etc.
Where is the 8-36 thread screw used. I know that small 12-32 nuts are used for coil point mounting.
8-32 sure, 8-36 perhaps?
the 12/32 nut is also used on the throttle rod ball joint on my original unrestored 1912 touring. I know because I looked for 3 days in my junk to find one, and low and behold, I had a large selection of them.
8-36 is UNF, shouldn't be hard to find.
I believe they are 8-32, 10-32 & 12-24. I just bought all new hinge & trim screws two weeks ago from Mac's. Cheap, but shipping is $8.-- They only have 2-day shipping.
Be sure if you want flat head or oval head, they do have both.
The only odd thread size I know of on this forum would be a short one.
If they are too short someone will "bump" them and wait for more comment.
Pat, there are many different thread counts for various size screws. Some are less common today than others. Of #8, 10 and 12, the most common are 8-32, 10-24, 10-32, and 12-24. However, there are many others: 8-24, 8-36, 8-40, 10-28, 10-36, 10-40, 10-56, 12-28, 12-32, 12-36.
Don't forget the magneto clamp screw which is 14-24.
