Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Bolt size for rear end halves

Have a rear end that is split without bolts. Driveshaft and tube is missing. Other than that axles and innards seem intact. Plan is to use the assembly to move build around while redoing the rear end that I plan on rebuilding. Need a few bolts to attach rear end halves together. Size? Thanks, Dave

Dave Frost: ;I always use ALL METAL SELF LOCKING NUTS on the these bolts. The regular nuts can sometimes work loose and spread rear end oil all over the place, including your shop.

Thanks, Just need to temporally hold rear end together for a way to move chassis around in the barn (make room lol)When I asked the question, I was 70 miles away from my project. When I went down there today, figured it out and luckily had bolts to get it back together. Now I need to find a set of small drum perches to make the plan work. If anyone has a set for sale, LMK. Even a worn out set would work for this as long as the threads are decent. Thanks, Dave
