    Water pump bleeder screw size

    I just got my broken screw out and id like to clear the threads. It looks like its M8 with a 1mm pitch instead of 1.25mm, but id like to make sure first.

    Even if you can get a bolt with the same thread size, the bleeder is hollow with a flare at the end to seal. Just order one from a Delorean vendor. If you need anything else like an oil filter, some bulbs, air filter, etc add it to the order. if you have a 5-speed an extra pivot bolt is always good to have.

    10mm× W1.0 Pitch. We have stainless bleeder screws if you want something better.

    He is asking what size it is so he can chase the threads.

    Dn010 is right. I already got a new bleeder screw. Thanks for the info guys. I would have gotten the stainless one if I didn't already have a new one.

    Does this mean you're shipping orders?
