Can someone tell me the size of the screw for this linkage? M8? by xx long? Mine seems to have taken a leave of absence.
I assume it is NLA? I tried to find the part numbers but couldn't. I think I could get a long bolt and a barrel nut and weld a tab on it with a hole to fab up a replacement.

thanks,

@ToyotaMatt / VintageTEQParts sells a nice complete replacement kit for the 2F that should work here as well.

I made a thing.
I'm still new to welding, so don't judge me too much. The only issue I have is that the bolt I found at the local fastener place doesn't have a long threaded section, so I had to space out the head with about 10 washers. It's a little janky but it works for now.
$5 worth of parts, and only because the minimum order at the fastener place is $5. Good thing I got enough washers to make the order $5. ;)

The problem you'll run into is very little to no adjustment with that set up. You'll need a lot more threads on that bolt to be of any use.

get some thread rod from McMaster Carr and weld a nut on one end to make your own bolt.

Also Mcmaster has 140mm fully threaded bolts: McMaster-Carr - https://www.mcmaster.com/screws/hex-head-screws-4/thread-size~m8/length~130mm/threading~fully-threaded/length~140mm/
Yeah, I knew I could get it from McMaster but I get frustrated paying their shipping for only a few bits. I went back to the fastener place this morning and switched out the bolt with one that is fully threaded. Will switch out the bolt tonight.
