Rocker/Plug Cover Bolts

Post by EddieMunster » Wed May 06, 2020 8:21 am

I don't suppose anyone knows where you can get a new set of these? Mine are reusable, but, they're a bit worn and tattered, so I was going to replace them with something new.

My local Honda dealer is closed, due to meltdown (read: lockdown), and I don't fancy gambling with what I think the pitch is, so if anyone has already replaced these and can remember what with, do let me know.

Regards

Just the nuts? m6 x 1mm (standard pitch).

A bag of stainless domed ones on ebay will be about £3.

No worries.

For any other nut / bolts on the car with the exception of a few random items (flywheel bolts, banjo bolts, con rod bolts), the pitch typically follows:

M6 - 1mm (standard)
M8 - 1mm (fine)
M10 - 1.25mm (fine)
M12- 1.5mm (fine)

If you're wanting the oem look, the bolts that hold the spark plug cover on, are also chrome plated.
You can order them online from lingshondaparts.co.uk and they're still shipping at the moment.

The M10x24 flange bolts, for the callipers, like quite a few of these bolts seem to be Honda-only.... £8 for a bolt, ahem.....

do you need some caliper bolts? I might have some spare from a 5th gen, some might even be new... Can't recall if front and back are the same?

I've started refurbing what I have; I'd completely rebuilt/painted all 4 callipers, so I thought it'd be nice to finish it off with new bolts, but the new bolts/clips were more expensive than 4 callipers, 4 rebuild kits and high-quality enamel finishing paint!! :D
