K AND N filter securing parts 1600xlow

Hi, so pic one shows the correct rod with machine screw securing the carb side of the filter housing, pic 2 show where the machine screw (that is now missing in action somehwere in the Meon Valley) used to be on the other rod. Please does anyone know the exact spec/size of the missing machine screw? Thanks in advance..

you're better of buying some used ones and either replacing them or canibalising them

Unless it is just a single screw you need.

I did try and remove one of mine so I could check for you but I cannot get the screw out, I guess I glued it in when initially assembled to avoid what has happened to you.  Do you have any local engineering companies you could take the rod to so they can check it for you.

Many Thanks, my others are all glued in too!! I am going to try my local non franchise garages tomorrow and hope for some luck! I can't believe it isn't a standard thread etc, it's just knowing I suppose. Time will tell....

My guess is that it is a UNF thread and probably a  #10/32

It's an M5, all sorted, thanks all.....

on this subject the reason this happened was I have fitted new filter elements....should they be oiled/sealed as when washed or are they ok as supplied and only need KandN wicking when washed?
