Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Oct,11/10,, First you need to know it the item is European or Japanese which all use Metric threads. If it is USA it probably uses Imperial threads which are fine or course. England (British) also have fine and course but not interchangable because thread angles are different. Anything of Japan older than 1967 also uses Metric but not the same metric as 1968 and newer. In 1967 there was a world conferance that was "ISO" international standard organization. Some Metric stayed the same but in small sizes under 6 MM, the 5s, 4s, and 3 were changed and all these have a tiny raised or indented dot to tell you they are the new thread. Some motorcycle parts use special not common threads to prevent you from using a cheap poor qualiy nuts or bolts that might fail when in use ( steering parts or brake parts on a car). Occasionally you might use too long of a bolt or screw and it may extend and break something else. Before 1901 most mechanice were called FITTERS because there was not many standard parts and everything had to be fitted. Henry Ford helped make things interchangable so we call them standard parts. If you could give some rough dimentions of the screw ( 3/16" long by 1/8"...or 5 mm by 13 mm long,,, or other American sizes are size 6X32 or 8x32 and different lengths. This would help. Can you find some old fellow that lives on a farm and he might be a mechanic and can figure what you need. Good luck, EEL
