    this is where a thread gauge , Zeus and micrometer become a necessity if you have removed one i would try a local fastening supplier and try and match it
    if you had the previously mentioned items it would have enabled you to find it on -line

    good morning,
    I had a similar problem,the newer,longer screws are not threaded enough to cut down,when I found some of the right length for mine I then discovered that quite a few of the threads were stripped in the hub,this prob was compounded by there not being enough meat around the hole to retap to a larger size,there is a company on ebay that sells a avm service kit with gaskets and screws cheaply but avoid them as they are rubbish quality(the gaskets are dissolved by oil!)
    I found a company in greenford who sell brand new brazilian made avm's at about £140 a pair walk in price, from all the trouble with the old ones I wish I had bought new at the start,
    atb and good luck,
    ryn
