That is what I would do after spending some time and effort to find the original size..going to a 5/8 fine thread should not be all that difficult..

Now you got me confused.......a size larger would be 3/4 wouldn't it? 5/8 would be a size smaller.

You may, if you'd like.

Stubborness is a virtue, a sign of tenacity , the sign of a steadfast man of conviction and confidence.


I'd say that it was meant as a compliment.


Doesn't always mean you make the best decisions though.

"Cheap" is a compliment too, if you say "thrifty".



Kisses, mikey

Or:

1 a (1): unreasonably or perversely unyielding : mulish (2): justifiably unyielding : resolute b: suggestive or typical of a strong stubborn nature

2: performed or carried on in an unyielding, obstinate, or persistent manner

3: difficult to handle, manage, or treat


I think I prefer your definitions over the Merriam-Webster version.

As far as decisions, I can think of a couple in my past that were real bad and one of them was really really bad

I called Southern Bolt (its a local call for me} & the feller I talked too has me confused with another person looking for the same thing so I have to call back @ 3:30 to see if its still "order able".

It would be good to know the length needed.

Rick your not posing as Steve are you?

Thanks for the responses. I had forgot about this post. It's been a while. I was not able to find the bolt. Although I was wondering if it would be possible to buy a 3/4-11 bolt and use the die (rethreader) to cut it down.

What do you think.

that could work. i had a friend that had a simular problem. got a set of brake plates for his 66 impala to bolt on discs. minus hardware because it was free. i think he finally got the bolt through classic industries top bolt to the spindle. $14 each. on the flip side, when i was in high school, our drill team was using Springfield M-1903A3 rifles. we occasionally lost the bolts that held them together. our Sergent Major had them custom cut at a machine shop to repair the rifles. i think there was a minimum order, and it's been almost 20 years, but i'm sure it will be cheaper than $14 each.

I don't think that will work either. A standard 3/4 bolt has 10 threads per inch.

You'll never get the die started on the larger diameter bolt, even if you could, a rethreader die has no cutting edges for the larger portion of the diameter.

You'd likely just spin the bolt in your vise, or break the die.

HTH, Mikey

My Solution

Hi Guys,
Thanks for all your suggestions! What I finally did is put a bushing in the chassis bracket (5/8-7/8), drill a 5/8" bolt & put a Zircon in it for grease, and use 2 nuts to lock the inside shackle on. I also had to drill the outside shackle so it fit on the non threaded end of the bolt.
Guess there's more than one way to skin a cat!
Steve

about 11/16-11 UNS bolts

I'm also looking for an 11/16-11 UNS bolt and learned that the designation "UNS" refers to "Unified National Special" threads which predominantly occur only as female threads like in tapped holes or in nuts. (more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Thread_Standard)

I'm hoping to find threaded rod or perhaps eye bolts with 11/16-11 UNS thread from this manufacturer of the Manta Ray earth anchor models MR-3 and MR-4: http://foresightproducts.com/

My custom application does not allow for sizing up or down so I'm stuck with 11/16-11 UNS.

Anyone learn if Cummins has 'em?
