Thread: AN bolts, nuts, spacers

    AN bolts, nuts, spacers


    I'm looking for a source of AN (aircraft grade) metric bolts, nuts and spacers for my gyro. I can find the items that I want on my manufacturer's site (Celier/Argo Aero), but they're marked up about ten fold. I need them for general repairs and my condition inspection(s).

    Thanks in advance,

    To be more specific, I'm looking for AN/aircraft grade:

    >M8 x 65 socket head bolts;
    >M8 nylock nuts; and,
    >10.3mm (ID), 12mm (OD), 3mm width bushings/spacers.

    John, et al -

    I don't know what I was doing wrong, but I finally find the bolts and nuts at Fastenal. My first inclination was Aircraft Spruce, too, but they don't really stock much in the way of metric nuts & bolts.

    Still looking for the spacers, though...

    I believe true AN hardware is not made in metric. The metric equivalent corrodes very easy.
