Can someone tell me what thread the big end bolts are please?
I need to replace one of the nuts which is cross-threaded. It's from a 1972 Range Rover if it makes any odds.

Thanks for any input.

I wouldn't worry about what thread it is; give Rimmer Bros a call in Lincoln, they stock every engine spare you'll ever need! Do Landie dealers not keep them?
I have some spare (used) con-rod T-bolts and nuts if you're really penny-pinching... ;-)

I'll come clean. The motor is forming the bottom half of a coffee table and will not be running again. I'm just re-assembling the bottom end for show. It looks pretty cool so far.

I made a lamp stand out of a crank shaft once, it cleaned up well and got painted white. Looked good IMHO.

A mate of mine used to keep his Kawasaki Z900 in the lounge; made a hell of an ornament! Errr... till it went through the floorboards... ;-)
