Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

I did a little direct hunting for you. Most suppliers sell 1/4" up to 6" long. For this you would need coupling nuts.

You might do OK by contacting the track makers for a bolt kit. If they order special, you might find they can be a source to you. Also, larger bolts will be available in longer lengths if you can consider making the holes bigger. I understand on the flat-head issue. You cannot even use oval head.

Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

Distal sounds like a medical/dental term?

Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

A machinist could turn this in 10 minutes on even a small lathe.

Distal refers to sites situated away from the point of attachment, or origin, or a central point.

Yep, if you cant find them, I would find a good TIG welder who can do this for you.

Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

I doubt a machinist or welder could reasonably make them for $12 each, especially in small quantities

Yeah, you are not going to turn that long a bolt and only 1/4 diameter on a normal lathe very easy. As far as welding, if you find an independent welder, ask him how you want the but ends prepped, you can probably easily get them pretty cheap... assuming you need a bunch of them...? How many do you need? 20? 50?
Is the $12 new ones someone found?.... If so ... no doubt about it... buy them!

Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

Solved!
With many thanks to everyone for the great responses and suggestions but Sanibel Sailor found them. We had already approached this company BoltDepot but they didn't have them - until we rejigged the size by1/2 inch and advised that the thread didn't need to be on the distal end only. Et voila! They have some on order for us and also supplied us with all the other bits and bobs. Once again Cruisers Forum comes through!

Re: Help finding a 190 mm bolt

I have a 1939 truck, a 1965 car, a 1979 RV and a 1979 boat. Nothing I need seems to be readily available off the shelf, but that is part of the fun I guess. I have gotten pretty good at finding the unavailable. Also why I have a lathe/milling machine in my garage.

Pretty easy. Washer, and Nyloc Nut to hold it firm, on the under side.
Hope that gives you some ideas.
You don't ever have to use the same thing as you've found during dissassembly.
