Differential bolts ( back low part )

While trying to install an Equipe Diff Guard ( well Doug did ) , on the tail ( towards the drive shaft )of the front Diff housing there are TWO holes where bolts go inside and that is where the diff guard bolts to.

Anyone has an idea what size bolts go in there?

They are some weird size that does not exist in nature.

Common suggestion is to drill and tap 7/16th to avoid the problem down the road.

I have extras that fit the holes on the underside of the rear diff (where you'd bolt a pinion guard). Needed two and had to place a minimum order. If you think they'll work I can try and dig them out and pop them in the mail to you.

Thanks guys for all the help, after bugging the crap out of Justrin, he is sending me some my way.

If anything changes, I 'll get back in here and beg again *LOL*

P.S. will try the 9mm x 1.25 as well tomorrow

Gustavo, Back from CR, and jumping in late on this one, but there is a British Metric fastener dealer in the airport park in Westminster, and if it exists, they should have it.
PS.. never try to put shocks in checked bagage, TSA will fuck up your plans.

Russell, best best is to just run a 3/8-16 tap into the threads...you will not have to drill anything and you will be able to use a bolt from just about any hardware store around.

Good tip Jeff as a web search yielded nothing. How can a bolt go NLA? Thankfully a HH brethren dropped a pair in the mail. But after watching Kenny shear these bolts (and guard) off at Roush, I'll keep that tap handy if round two is required.

Are these different on the Defender? Because I am fairly certain that on the Discovery/RRC the correct size is 3/8-20 BSF ... and while running a 3/8-16 tap in the hole might cut you some threads, it is far from ideal- hence the recommendation to tap to 7/16.

Perhaps I have just gotten lucky but recently bent my steering arm enough to break the stock steering guard thing that mounts to the bottom of the front diff in half but both 3/8-16 bolts were still in the threads. I know that there could be a number of variables with this so just saying...
