5-16 18 Whitworth Bolts
« on: 15 Nov 2018 at 10:54 »
Anybody can get 5/16-18 W bolts for a 600 Aero's engine heads?
Would need a complete set for both cylinders.

Any help welcome.

There is a firm called Progress Aero Works in Macclesfield, who made some Df clutch adjuster bushes (a bolt with a clutch adjuster thread inside) for the club. They would probably make these for you. They would prefer a pattern however I am sure they could work from a drawing.  Google them - they make amazing engines.

Thank you for the information. I sent an E-mail to Aero Works a few days ago and still waiting for their reply...
