Third Member Bolt

Anyone know the exact thread pitch???

I think it's a M10...

Also, where can I buy them?

PS. I'm referring to the one under the third member... there are two of them. where you mount the track rod guard.

Seen different answers, the common theme being drill and tap for 7/16ths, but

When we were at fastenal I could have sworn we established the bolt we pulled from the D90 was 10mm, 1.5 pitch though.

Yes, it was a 10...

are to talking about the one in the bags, or the "chart" he showed us?

the ones in the bag had a larger pitch... the one we had smaller thread.

The bolt you took out of my D90 (and didn't put back) that we took to measure. it threads into my spare diff fine so I assume it's a stock size (although admittedly doesn't look like a LR bolt to me)

A bit late I guess, but I have a set of whatchamacallit to help find the thread of metric bolts. Don't think I have whats needed for standard threads. Be careful, M10 1.5 nuts seem to thread well on some standard thread bolts.

I have the table too and it looked like a M10. But the pitch was a little "iffy".
