Need a bolt - having trouble finding online!

Hey peeps!

I took this bolt out (don't ask why) and I broke it. I can't seem to find it online, I could sure use some help finding a part # or a link to it.

See the photo. This is the left side of the engine.

Can anyone help???

Thanks so much!

Well, it isn't just a bolt. It is the oil galley plug. Only help I can offer is, DO NOT try and start the engine until you replace that plug.

Hi, Nick -

Yeah, it appears the left side oil galley plug is NLA ... the O-ring that goes with it is still available, however (#42 on the diagram Marty posted, part #93210-18319-00) $1.40

As for the plug itself, you could try Ebay, or PM member andreashweiss here on the forum ... he has lots of parts, and may be able to help you.

I never knew that oil plug was even there. What prompted you to remove it?

Yeah, I read that, but like to learn, was he trying to polish the side cover, did the threads strip out, how did it break?

I recall when removing my drain plug on the bottom of engine, I worried about the same thing. It seemed so tight, I thought maybe it was reversed threaded, so I posted on here first, just to make sure. Long story short, I purchased a torque wrench (I didn't have and breaker bar/cheater bar) and it came of like butter.

It's stories like these, where people learn.

Hi, d-1 -

Don't get me wrong ...

I'm curious, too ... why he would remove the left side oil galley plug (a part that is not routinely removed).

I was just having a little fun with 'ya ...

I have several non running engines that will donate that part for the cost of shipping as long as they are easy to get out.
