Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Main bearing bolt..........
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By George Andreasen on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 05:09 pm:

I was sorting through my 1918 engine parts, getting ready for a main bearing pour in the future. I discovered that one of the main bearing bolts had been cut off at some point, rendering it useless. I checked a couple of online sources, expecting to find a single replacement, and it looks like you have to buy a complete set for around $100...ouch!

Is there any reason a standard hex bolt, drilled for cotter pins, couldn't be used instead?

Maybe these are still available:

If not, I'll bet that Dave Huson would sell you a single bolt, or a set at a good price. :-)

I used hardened bolts from ACE for the front main when I installed the AC compressor. I ran the bolts, installed the nuts, installed the compressor plate and installed another nut with lock waters. Did this a long time ago. All s good.

The email may be in your spam files, depends on your settings. Worth checking.

Ah.....okay. Got it now. Most websites have a "PM" section of some sort, so I couldn't figure it out. Thanks!

For whatever it is worth? I receive PMs here fairly often in my email. Send them from time to time also. I like the way this system works. A couple other sites I check occasionally? I have tried to use their in-house PMs, and for the life of me, I can't figure them out.
Guess it just depends on what you are used to.
