Default Source for BVM 91 Rotor bolt ??

Yikes,
BVM doesn't carry this anymore and I can't find a source
Anybody got one to sell?

Looks like 1/4 " hex socket bolt - 28 thread pitch - the tough part though is its 2.25 or 2.5" long!
I haven't found a bolt with the correct dimensions anywhere online without buying at least 50!

Also in need of a starter wand as well

Thanks
Jake

I will look at home tonight if you can't find one. Someone will have one no worries there.

Don't feel bad as I remember they were custom made to spec.

I should have also mentioned - also need an aftbody fairing for the fan unit and the fairing that goes behind the cyl head if somebody's got one lying from years ago!

Are you talking about the ducting after head shroud? I've got bolts and after engine shrouds, just not sure what you mean on the other.

Yes, the Fiberglass fairing that's attached to the top duct cover- it directs the airflow just behind the top cylinder head
I need that and the aftbody fairing - it is about 6" FG long cone, attaches to the back of carb with an "s" shaped rod- it directs air smoothly past the back of the fan unit.

Should also add -I just realized I'm missing the 4 rubber rectangle pads that soft mount the fan unit to the mounting plates
About 1/8" thick , 1/4X1" black rubber with 2 holes in them

Let me know what you've got and how much for them
I'm in California and can Paypal
Thanks!

Jake:

The rubber "soft mount" pads are still available from BVM as I believe they are used on the current EDF units.

Sorry

True, BVM has them if you can't find them elsewhere.

The bolts are also 1/4" socket drive to stand up to the torque of starting
All the ones I've found online are3/16" drive
