rd 200 1 E8 generator bolt??
« on: June 01, 2018, 05:15:45 PM »
Hi Fellas, I have just noticed that the long bolt that holds the advance and retard mechanism onto the crank shaft is bent. this explains a lot of questions that I had! it is an M 7 thread I think and its 100mm long, part threaded. does anyone know if this part is still available or where I might get another one ? cheers...

Asked a similar question recently.
There are genuine bolts available from the U.S., but expect to pay at least £15.
Part number  90143-07021-00  is what you need.
According to Fowlers, this part number replaced the original 1E8 part.
I can confirm that the length is the same (4"), but it is threaded slightly longer.

Are we completely mad that we are willing to pay over £15 for a genuine bolt for crying out loud!!  :o

Have you ever tried to get an M7 bolt of any length ? You could prob make one from an m8 if you've access to a lathe & an  m7 die. It's probably been bent in a crash & the casing replaced at some point in its life
