Re: Belt tensioner bolt size... (Deutscher_Wagen)

Go to home depot. 8mm x 1.25 as I recall. The hardest part about the whole job was running the new belt around the pulleys correctly.

The bently call for a 8x80 MM bolt. You can use something shorter that 80mm. But they are right, go to your local hardware store and pic one up.

I like how the Bentley tells you how long but not the thread pitch. Someone chime in if I am wrong but it is 8mmx1.25 , isn't it? And I think 60mm is about as short as you want to go.

I don't think you usually have to worry about that with metric bolts.. just get an M8 x 80.
