I agree with you 100%, old, I was just suggesting an alternative if no parts store is nearby.

(I am 60 miles from the nearest Oh, Reallys.(

I stopped in an O'Reilly today.

I told him I needed a 6x32 screw and it was for a condenser for a Delco Dist.

He asked if that was the part number.

I'm old school, back when I worked in the garage the counterman was your friend.
Now they hire a body.[/quote]

Most any hardware store or "big box' home improvement store will have #6-32 and #8-32 screws in a drawer in the area where they sell nuts and bolts and misc. hardware.

Problem there is most screws are to long and in turn cause problems with the advance of the distributor where as the ones I talk about are made just for the distributor

Many wirestrippers/crimpers are made to cut small screws to length without mangling the threads.

I just used one tonight to make a short screw to replace a missing short #10-24 in the breaker point cover.

QUICK and easy.

Note 5 holes for cutting and cleaning up the threads on common screws.

The Doorman area is where you find the hold down screw. They come in a pack of 5-10 made t fit all distributors there a distributor screw pack or some such. I keep a pack in my mobile tool box just in case I need them

You're right about them just hiring a body. If they can't look it up on the computer by year, make and model they are lost. Luckily I have a NAPA just down the road who's old school and the only employee there.

Got a great parts guy at my local advance, old guy with only one arm. Restores old tractors and old cars one handed, and drives them.I saw him at a show driving his '66 ford pickup 4 speed one handed, he drove 40 miles each way. When I told the other guy at the store my '69 f250 had a 460 in it he looked at the computer and said "no it doesn't" It does, the one armed guy figured out that it matched what probably came out of a '70 Lincoln, so now I tell the kids I have '70 Lincoln if he isn't there.

Speaking of a big magnet, I also dropped a nut from the oil pan off of my transmission. I searched and searched, got the grass clippers out and scalped that area, got the magnet out, found some old metal but not my bolt. When I went to put the pan back on, I realized that the nut stayed in the socket and the washer is what fell out bounced off my chest and landed in the grass. Did the transmission filter fluid change in the grass because dropping that pan full of fluid gets messy and I did not want it all over the shop floor. gobble

It's either #6-32 or #8-32 and SHORT.

If too long (any longer than needed, 3/8" or more) it will catch on the advance mechanism under the breaker plat and WRECK things.
