Damper Plate Bolts

Perkins 4-107 engine, flywheel, damper plate ...
knowing I would purchase a new plate when I rebuilt my engine and transmission I gave my old plate to a friend along with the shouldered bolts that hold it to the flywheel. Now I can't find new shouldered bolts.
Does anyone know where I can locate the correct 5/16" shouldered cap screws?

Re: Damper Plate Bolts

DeepFrz ... After giving him a 71C & damper plate, and installing it for him in his boat, because he couldn't fit into the deck hole, now he won't speak to me. Long story, lots of water (proverbial) he thinks I stole his 56 ft abandon, rotting boat that he wanted nothing to do with. ... wow, who need friends like that anyway?

Re: Damper Plate Bolts

Problem solved ... I made them myself out of 2" shoulder bolts. I just ran a die down to the right length shoulder.
Now why didn't I think of that before?
I'm going to make the exhaust and injector studs I need, also, out of left over 5/16" bolts.
