Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Better question, what size washers? As in fender washers.

Fenders washers are weak! They will keep bending as the wood compresses.

Alberta Oilfield Electricians can usually find Stainless Steel fender washers.

One reason I get so much help at my crash sites. Scavengers!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

O.K Manny. Now we should ask where we can get good grade fasterners?
Well the hobby shops carry good stuff. RTL fasteners are popular, but not readilky available when you are 2 days away from an event, and need a 10/32 X 4" spinner center bolt.
I find it handy to stop in my travels say twice a year at an industrial fastener supply store. Stock up on metric all thread, nuts, ny-nuts etc. And of course 4" spinner bolts. You might find some 10/32 coupling nuts in my inventory.

I'm a T-nut user.
Fiddling around with little nuts (and washers) seems silly, especially when one of your hands is deep in the cockpit.

As size was not stipulated. That in itself leaves a lot to interpretation.

Maybe in the east.

I had a couple strip out and was only held on by 2. Did not learn my lesson the first time and did it again with the 176 on the engine test stand. Learned my lesson now. It only took two times. They probably were c**nt ones though.

Were those blind nuts?
I do know of bolts that failed on your run-stand.
