Rear end cover bolts
« on: May 03, 2008, 03:10:35 AM »
Does anyone know if allthe rear end cover bolts are the same?  Specifically, the one that holds the brake line T to the rear end cover.  All the bolts on my cover were the same except for the one that holds the T to it.  The others have a shoulder around the head and are dimples.  The one holding the T on had no shoulder on the head.  Of course, this is the one that broke off.

Everything you said is correct.  They are the same except for the brake hose tee.

Of course, that's the one that broke.  I've got replacements for the others.  Thanks.

I'll try and clean it up and get one.  I have to go get gas today and do the 110 octane mix.

My other bolts look like your first picture, but mine have a dimple in them.  That second picture is nasty.
