    Problems & Maintenance
    Had a timing tensioner bolt shear off in the block. Was able to extract it but having trouble finding a replacement. It’s a M10-1.25x70 bolt but I can’t seem to find the hardness of the bolt anywhere. It’s not stamped on the bolt. The local hardware store has class 8.8 and class 10.9 but no...
