Cologne rocker bolt

Post by speedy555 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 7:41 am

I've very foolishly lost one rocker assembly pedestal bolt and washer / spacer for my cologne engine if anyone can help?
Thanks. Dave.

Also called Car Clinic or Cologne engines, ridiculously poor websites but possibly the best for Essex and Cologne parts and advice there is IMHO.

Dave I have taken a bolt out of my spare engine and replicated it out of a HT bolt.
They are waisted at the top end to allow the oil to pass through the centre of the rocker rod and lubricate the rockers and valve springs.
I can drop it inside the GTC radiator box if you wanted it?. :wink:

Ok
I have all the types, there are 3 differing types used.
All interchangeable, the length of thread is the critical thing.
