I have a new spare tire latching bolt coming in the mail today and I need to get the small roll pin that goes through the top threads to keep the bolt from coming all the way out when unlatching the spare tire tub.

Anyone know what size to go look for?  Heading to Ace Hardware.  I know I can use a cotter pin but would like to use a roll pin as designed.  I forgot to order one.

I would take a drill bit that would fit in the hole and take that with me to Ace Hardware and match it up that way.   The roll pin would just have to be slightly larger than the drill bit.

Probably the F4 connection. Back in my Navy days I always wanted to try to get a ride in one. Watched a lot of them fly over our ship when we were plane guarding for the carrier. The fact that they had no gun was a bummer but I heard they added a gun pod later in the Vietnam War.

Hi, probably won't be able to buy just One. You can get an assortment box at NAPA or maybe Home Depot. Shouldn't be to difficult to locate.

Went to Ace Hardware.  They had a great selection and the one I needed cost me a whopping  40 cents.

Probably made in the USA too!
