Engine ID Plate Brass Hammer Screws

Post by Kerry Price » Sun Jul 15, 2018 6:13 pm

I am trying to locate some #4 X 1/4" brass hammer screws to attach my engine ID plate onto the exhaust manifold of my MBL and can't find them anywhere. I only need 6 or so. Does anyone know where to find these?

Kerry,

I don't think they exist. Stainless steel from McMaster-Carr is all I know of

Restoration Supply also carries them, but I don't know if they have brass?

Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, the only source I have found for brass is in the UK where they can be found through several sources. I went ahead and ordered some on ebay uk and having them sent to a family member there who will mail them to me. Otherwise, the shipping alone for 6 screws was going to be 40 pounds or around $70 US.

Chris Craft originally used steel. So new stainless steel ones are an acceptable replacement.
