Correct bolt for oil filter strap 64c

#1 Post by Dave Whittick » Fri Mar 23, 2018 10:37 pm

Could somebody post a picture or describe the correct head markings/dimensions for the proper bolt for the oil filter strap on my 64?

See line number 113 in spreadsheet
This is what was on my 6/64 SC Cab but I believe the bolt could have markings from any of the regular suppliers.

Greg is correct as verified by by the parts manual. I've seen Verbus, Karro and Kamax bolts used. Per the parts manual: M8x45 DIN 931-8G.

Thanks for the help guys. Always learning. That spreadsheet is a great resource.

Now that I have your attention, do either of your recognize this bolt?

That looks like a homemade version of the no. 4 bearing location bolt

I say home made because it appears to be ground on a bench grinder but it may only be the photo
The manufacturer of the one I’m holding is Ribe
