Urvine Q72


Hi, can anyone help? What is the bolt/thread size of the 4 caphead bolts that secure the backplate? The thread looks coarse, possibly not metric, their diameter is 3.42mm or 0.135". Thanks

The Q72 used UNC threads, I think it was most likely a #6 32 but it could have been #8 32 size.

Many thanks for the reply, I've measured the thread with a gauge, the 55* gauge reads 32G - 5/32", and the 60* gauge reads 0.8.
The reason for my question is the plane in your photo, the Panic - I've found some American capheads from a Great Planes Venus that match, as I need longer bolts for the Irvine backplate to allow for the Panic backplate engine mount.
