LC8 float chamber bolts

I have the carbs apart for cleaning, and threw away the bolts that hold the float chamber on because the bolt heads were stripped. I assumed I could order new ones with no prob. Now that I am ordering parts I see they don't sell just the bolts. Does anyone know what size/ type they were, or where to get them? Just to be clear, the bolts that hold #24 in this diagram onto the carb.

Take the carbs to the closest hardware shop and fit some new bolts there.
Buy allen key ones this time, harder to fuck those up then them stock soft Phillips-head screws.

They come with the Factory Pro jet kit. Anyone have one laying around? I did a bunch of searches and came up empty.

I think they are std M5 bolts

No need to torque them like mad.
Cheers.

In USA they don't find metric bolt so easily (even in Canada, where they are officially "metric")

I remember being able to find any diameter easily (not everywhere though) in Canada but the correct length and the head choice was a problem

Usual metric bolts have only one thread per diameter
High strenght bolts have different thread (eg: safety belt bolt)

The phillips head screws are crap. Replace with 4mm socket heads.

Bolt Depot 4mm Socket Head Cap Screws

Bolt Depot has everything you need. I have replaced the screws with socket heads on every carb I have opened, especially dirt bikes.

All you need to do is make sure you have the right length.

Cheers Ken
